It is the job of an MP to speak up for the people they represent. When the government allocates money for transport schemes, skills training and job creation, they do so to what is called Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) who prioritise which projects in their area should be awarded this money. For some time I have been concerned that Fenland has not been receiving its fair share from the Cambridgeshire LEP, which prioritises projects in the south of the county. Over the festive period I have done some detailed research to illustrate this and set out how we can move forward quickly to progress Wisbech rail and dualling sections of the A47 using £10 million of money the government has already allocated to Cambridgeshire LEP for Wisbech transport improvement. I do not expect everyone to want to read a 9 page paper from their MP, but for those who do, it is here. I also include 15 questions I have called the LEP to answer here. I hope even for those who do not wish to read it, they can see that their MP is working on their behalf.
