Port of Dover

Today I asked a question in Transport Questions about the port of Dover referendum and whether Transport Ministers' would heed the Prime Minister's Big Society policy.

I said: "On 23 March, the people of Dover will vote in a referendum on whether they want a people's port big society change in Dover. If the people vote for the big society, will the Secretary of State help to implement it?"

Ports Minister: "My hon. Friend is tenacious in his work for the people of Dover. As he knows, the Minister of State is still looking at the proposals for Dover, and at this time it would be improper for me to say any more."

Well . . . nice try anyway!
