Department for Transport's Statement on the Future of the Port of Dover

Today the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport, Mike Penning MP made a Ministerial Statement on the future of the Port of Dover.

I am delighted that the Government has delivered on our election pledge to review the sell off proposed by the previous Government. I intend to put forward the people's port bid so that the people can own our port. I remain opposed to the previous Government's plan for fire sale of our port to the French or whoever.
