Following today’s announcement from the Chief Secretary to the Treasury that plans for the new North Tees & Hartlepool Hospital have been scrapped by the coalition Government; Alex Cunningham has tabled an Early Day Motion calling for the decision to be reviewed.
Alex has written to his colleagues in the North East, regardless of political party, asking them to support this EDM. Alex said:
“I hope both James Wharton, the Conservative MP for Stockton South and Ian Swales, the Liberal Democrat MP for Redcar, will join Labour MPs and support this EDM. Their constituents will lose out if this project does not go ahead and will expect their new MPs to demand the coalition Government immediately reviews this decision.”
