Harbour Board delaying tactics

Today the Dover Express reports that the Harbour Board are seeking to delay putting in their sell off proposals for Ministers to make a decision on.

This latest delay is unacceptable. For three years we have had the uncertainty created by the Harbour Board's determination to sell itself off to the French or whoever. In the teeth of resistance by just about everybody.

This uncertainty is harming the future prospects of Dover. It has gone on long enough. We need to get on with regenerating the town - especially the seafront where the land owned by the Harbour Board is a pretty disgusting mess. In view of this I am asking Ministers to review the powers they have up to and including whether an interim board should be appointed.

We cannot carry on like this and we need to make progress to improve Dover and create more jobs and money.
