Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a function at No 10. I was able to have a discussion with David Cameron on the subject of the A14 upgrade. He told me he had just been talking about the A14 with Cabinet colleagues and was keen to accelerate the upgrade.
I get the impression that anyone standing in the way of this upgrade might find life getting difficult moving forward!
I was approach by Nick Boles, the planning minister, who call me ” Mr Growth” reflecting, I am guessing, on our fantastic achievements in Cambridgeshire rather than my girth! It’s good that our counties pro growth stance is being recognised. Nick was keen to come to visit to see some of our great work.
