Welcoming Ports Minister to Dover

I welcomed the new Ports Minister, John Hayes, to Dover on Thursday morning to see the changes transforming the Port.

John Hayes became the Ports Minister in July. Charlie showed the Minister round the Port to see the major ongoing changes at the Port. He was really impressed by the Port and the change we make.

We've come a long way together. We stopped Labour's port sell off. The port now has powers to get the investment it needs. We are appointing our first community directors and there is now a community fund for the development of the town.

All this is at risk at the next election. Why would we want to go back to where we were four short years ago? We can't risk Labour having another go at selling off our port.
