Your Letters: Is Roger Gale doing too little for Manston?

George Cunningham writes to us expressing dissatisfaction with the governments slow response to the issue of Manston.

I am disappointed that, yet again, there is a further delay in resolving the Manston Airport issue. The government yesterday appointing a consultant to undertake a review of the process until now on decisions about the future of Manston Airport is just that. One has the impression that this is being deliberately spun out by the two main parties until after the general and district elections on 7th May.

Even if the Department of Transport announces at the last minute that it will support the CPO, there is no guarantee that the next government will honour it. Sir Roger Gale whispering in the ear of the prime minister and chancellor and getting encouraging noises in return, visits by Tory notables to the airport and TDC et al, are no substitute for the hard and fast resolution of this issue which seems always being evaded and delayed.

George Cunningham, Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for North Thanet.
