Mondays (9.7.18) session in Parliament was an illustration of how distanced the current Prime Minister is about our communities. Whether it be through fault of her own or her MP’s.
Set out below is the transcript from Hansard where Dover MP, Charlie Elphicke, still under police investigation from early November 2017, scores another hit espousing the importance of delivering the Lorry Park in the event of a ‘No deal’ Brexit.
In the PM’s response it was both gut churning and sickening to hear “He (Elphicke) champions the rights and needs of his constituents very eloquently in this House”.
Parliament’s bubble is still undented by the Judicial review or local residents opprobrium toward the biggest, unworkable, global Lorry Park sited between our Kentish Villages. Even more reason to view our previous posts and fill out the Highways England survey:
I welcome the Prime Minister’s statement that no deal preparations will be stepped up. What are those preparations; how will they be stepped up; will they include new money; and most importantly, will they include the delivery of the lorry park on the roads to the channel ports that was promised two years ago but that has not yet been delivered by the Department for Transport?
As I said earlier, £1.5 billion has already been allocated, and the Chancellor has made £3 billion available over two years for the various preparations, which include the no deal preparations. The new Brexit Secretary will take on the task of ensuring that we step up those no deal preparations. I know from previous discussions the concern my hon. Friend has about the potential lorry park in Kent in relation to the port of Dover. He champions the rights and needs of his constituents very eloquently in this House.
