During Prime Minister’s questions today (10th July) Prime Minister Theresa May agreed to help David Morris progress talks on the Eden Project Morecambe.
David Morris MP asked:
The Eden Project wants to come to the north of England—to Morecambe. I would like to have a meeting with the Chancellor and the Prime Minister to talk about putting Eden into Morecambe to make sure it is the jewel in the north-west that it should be.
The Prime Minister Theresa May MP said:
I was not previously aware that the Eden Project wanted to come to Morecambe. I am happy to arrange suitable conversations for my hon. Friend so that he can make that case.
Speaking after the question David Morris MP said:
The Eden Project will be a gamechanger for Morecambe but will not happen without £40 million pounds of Government Funding. I am making sure this Project is at the forefront of Minister’s minds to ensure we secure that funding. I am delighted that the Prime Minister will help me secure the next stage of the talks needed on this vital project.’
