CaMKox Corridor Champion @iainastewart – We still havn’t finalised our Next Steps – Wait for Budget

A partially useful tweet from Iain Stewart Mp in response to my last post on the corridor

HMG has not finalised its response to the NIC report. The commitment was to do so by the time of the 2018 Autumn budget. My appointment and work has been to help prepare for that. Re the Sunday a Times article…it was inaccurate…you should not believe everything in the press!

Except I didnt mention any press article?  I presume he means George Monbiot’s Guardian piece which kicked off the politics, nothing appearing headline wise outside paywall on corridor in the Times or Sunday times for several months.

He responded

Replying to @AndrewLainton

I haven’t seen a Guardian article…although I don’t read the paper. My firm view is that this vision needs proper long-term co-ordination between Government depts/agencies and between central and local Government. I have made many speeches on this. Eg…


Needless to say the [Sunday Times} article was nonsense, as is the Guardian one. The Corridor vision is much more than new housing and transport links.
