Service women and men working in the Royal Navy, British Army and the Royal Air Force will welcome MSPs to their bases as part of a new programme launched at the Scottish Parliament.

The Armed Forces Parliamentary Visit Scheme encourages members of the Scottish Parliament (MSPs) to visit defence bases to learn more about the issues facing service personnel and their families across Scotland.

The programme will also provide MSPs with a further insight into how Scotland contributes to the nations’ security.

Mark McKenzie from BFBS Scotland has been speaking to The Presiding Officer, Ken Macintosh MSP.
