Chancellor George Osborne congratulates David Morris on securing the M6 Link Road

In yesterday’s treasury questions Morecambe and Lunesdale MP David Morris asked the Chancellor if he agreed that the m6 link road was vital for securing the Northern powerhouse effect across the north west.

Speaking in questions David Morris said:

‘Mr Speaker my constituency we have a link road, that’s been 60 years overdue and infact the Prime Minister and the Chancellor came, the Prime Minister actually put a series of bolts into the bridge there. Does my Right Honourable friend agree with me that this road is vital to the improvement of my constituency and also these types of projects should be rolled out across the area to ensure more vitality and a northern powerhouse.’

In response Chancellor George Osborne said:

‘The Heysham M6 Link road is a major achievement of my honourable friend, people have been campaigning for 70 years for the Heysham Link road and I happened to visit about a week before the general election, with the Prime Minister, and because of my Honourable friend fighting for infrastructure and jobs he is back here doing his job.’
