During Prime Ministers Questions earlier today David Morris MP used his first question of this Parliament to press ahead for Government funding for the Eden Project in Morecambe.
Speaking in the chamber David Morris MP said:
‘Mr Speaker, you being a northern MP like myself would welcome the news that there is going to be more money spent in the North of England.
I want to reiterate that Morecambe needs the Eden Project and would my Rt Hon Friend the Prime Minister like to come to Morecambe and see me and the Eden team about getting the Eden Project back in Morecambe again to Make Morecambe the best place on the face of this earth.’
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
‘Indeed Mr Speaker the Eden of Britain. I’ve just heard from my Rt Hon Friend the Chancellor, that he does indeed Mr Speaker. The House should know that the Eden Project is now, thanks to the Chancellor very likely to come to Morecambe’
Speaking after today’s PMQ’s David Morris MP said:
‘I wanted to use the first PMQ’s of the Parliament to put Morecambe and our Eden Project on the top of the Prime Minister’s agenda. The Prime Minister has now committed to the Project saying that thanks to the Chancellor Eden is very likely to happen. It is a fantastic position for us to be in ahead of the budget scheduled for 11th March, and I know the team at Eden are really pleased with the PM’s words today’
