Working hard for the people of West Lancashire

25/10/11 - Rosie Cooper MP statement on Environment Agency propo

In response to the Environment Agency’s proposals West Lancashire MP, Rosie Cooper said:


“I have met with the Environment Agency to discuss this particular issue and to seek assurances about any impact on West Lancashire residents.  I would certainly encourage all landowners to get involved in the consultation process and to have your say.


“However, I am more than happy to take up any issue directly with the Environment Agency on behalf of any landowner, farmer, business or resident that have any concerns about these proposals.


“Having spoken to the Environment Agency on the issue of consultation in West Lancashire, they tell me that they will be holding more events in the area to give people more chances to make their views known.


“I will continue to monitor this consultation and the proposals closely.  My absolute priority is to ensure the safety and protection of West Lancashire residents.


“Unfortunately, we are seeing the direct impact on people, businesses and communities of the government’s budget cuts.”
