John Maples MP opposes regional government

Posted by wonkotsane on October 4, 2006

As promised, we contacted all the Conservative MP’s in the West Midlands yesterday to ask them if they will be opposing the West Midlands Regional Assembly following David Cameron’s speech at the Conservative Party Conference.

With it being the conference week we didn’t really expect a very quick response but all credit to Alcester MP, John Maples who managed to fire off a quick reply to us early this afternoon.

I have consistently opposed Regional Assemblies, but they are government policy and I do not see how we could change the situation in the West Midlands.

If you have any specific ideas on how we might achieve this, please let me know as I might well be happy to support them. I fear that we shall have to await a Conservative Government.

We have responded to Mr Maples with some ideas, if you live in his constituency perhaps you might like to speak to him and see what you can come up with between you.

It appears that at least two West Midlands MP’s – John Maples and Daniel Kawczynski – are willing to make a stand against regional government.  As and when we hear from other MP’s we’ll keep you posted.
