Delyn MP David Hanson has today spoken in Parliament to call for improved rail, broadband, and housing infrastructure to help boost the North Wales economy.
Mr Hanson spoke in a debate secured by Alyn and Deeside MP Mark Tami to make clear the importance of infrastructure to large businesses, the commuting population and tourism in North Wales, and the need for improved transport connections, development of housing stock and greater support for the offshore wind industry and broadband rollout. The debate came on the penultimate day of this parliament, with MPs from across North Wales calling for greater government support for the North Wales economy through developing the vital infrastructure that underpins it.
Mr Hanson MP said:
“Today’s debate was an important moment to remind the government before the election that whoever is in power on May 8th that North Wales is doing well and has a great deal to offer, but it can and should do better. We need the best possible transport links to Cheshire and Merseyside as well as connections to the rest of Wales, better broadband, and improved support for housing, energy and other areas that are vital to our economy. “
“Whoever is elected in May will need to return to these issues and I’m glad to have been able to take part in the debate to ensure they are a key consideration at this election.”
