SMOKE AND MIRRORS OF LEVELLING UP CON TRICK

The UK Tory Government made much of its so-called “levelling up” agenda. Indeed, it has boasted about so-called “successful” bids for funding, not least funding for the upgrade of the B714 in North Ayrshire.

 

Three years later, that funding has still not been delivered and in that three years the cost of materials and labour has increased significantly.

 

I have repeatedly pressed the UK Government to deliver this funding and to increase it by the rate of inflation so that the project can be delivered, as envisaged.

 

The Department of Levelling Up argued that this was a matter for the Department of Transport. When I raised this with the Transport Minister guess what he said? 👇

 

I always said this whole “levelling-up” agenda was no more than a sham! Sadly, I have  been proven right as it turns out only 10% of all fundings for “successful” levelling up bids has actually been delivered.
