Commenting after the meeting, Nick said,

“From 2006, Sharon led the fight to save Ashford International railway station, and she understands the infrastructure and regeneration needs of the South East. I have been to see her to underline how important it is, especially in the economic downturn, for Hastings & Rye to be able take its share of the European business opportunities afforded by the international rail links.

“We are having an ongoing conversation about the needs of this area – which she knows is the most deprived in her European constituency. I am updating her about the ongoing difficulties for our fishing and tourist industries. I am underlining just how much our area needs the Party’s positive plans to tackle the recession – particularly in terms of the construction industry, and for job creation in general.

“Just as Sharon led the ‘Honk to Save Ashford’ campaign, I have no doubt that she will be honking loudly for Hastings & Rye at the European Parliament.”
