This week I recieved a letter from the Minister for Transport, Andrew Jones. It was in response to a letter that I wrote, co-signed by sixteen Conservative South West MPs, regarding routes into the South West and the upgrade of roads in the region.
For many years now, I have campaigned alongside my Conservative colleagues to get better rural transport for our region. The South West has been neglected for far too long in terms of infrastructure development. Following a Westminster Hall debate on 'Road Routes to the South-West', which I secured earlier this year, I decided to write a letter to the Transport Minister with a view to getting some answers and gaining some momentum. I was pleased to see such fantastic support for this cause and gratefully recieved the letter, below, which provides detail on the infrastructure spending that we all want.
