West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“Back in March the Government announced a ban on any new rail schemes going ahead. This is a typical short-term and short-sighted decision by this Government.
“I continue to campaign and push for the Burscough Curves scheme to go ahead and am working with all the relevant bodies to make whatever progress we can in the face of the Conservative-led Government continuing to throw barriers in the way of schemes like the Burscough Curves. I remain committed to the long-term future of this scheme and to making it happen.”
