Prior to the Autumn Statement, I lobbied the Chancellor of the Excehquer to include support for the Ayrshire Growth Deal.
I also lobbied David Mundell MP, Secretary of State for Scotland, for his support in this matter.
In the event, the response I received was disappoining and the Ayrshire Growth Deal was not mentioned in the Autumn Statement.
Now the Chancellor has agreed to meet with Ayrshire MPs in Janaury. It is to be hoped that support for the Ayrshire Growth Deal will be forthcoming.
