We’ve moved: to www.chilibdems.co.uk

From 1 Sep 10 David and Sue have moved to www.chilibdems.co.uk. At this site we will not just report our county councillor activity but we will also be joined by our district councillor colleagues (Jonathan Chatfield and Edd Stonham for Histon and Impington and Lynda Harford for Cottenham).

 The new site is more ‘sophisticated’ and we hope that it will bring you more useful and timely information.

That means: no new stories on this site for the time being. Retune your radio to chilibdems!

Cambridge transport debated at Westminster Hall

Cambridge City MP spoke at the recent adjournment debate. He began:

‘I am delighted to have secured this crucial debate, especially as it is the last Westminster Hall debate before the long recess. I apologise, Mr Sheridan, for detaining you and the Minister from the break. Transport affects all my constituents daily, in one way or another, and it is a major concern that is raised constantly by residents and employers. Having spent almost my whole life in Cambridge, and having chaired the Cambridge traffic management committee for many years, I know the problems all too well. However, I am enthusiastic about the opportunities to make transport in Cambridge better for all-for businesses using important freight routes, for commuters who make the daily journey to work, and for tourists who come to enjoy the region’s historical and cultural attractions.’
