Big Society debate held in Commons

Today I secured a debate and proposed a motion in the House of Commons for the first time. The debate for to secure the approval of the Commons for the Prime Minister's Big Society policy.

Of course, I mentioned the People's Port. Yet I also set out how giving communities like Dover a greater say over their futures leads to faster growth, meaning more jobs and money. This is most important in regions and places, like Dover and Deal, that are far from London.
