The St Helens Star requested a comment from Marie Rimmer MP on the Prime Ministers “Strong Towns Fund”:

“The Prime Minister’s stronger town fund is welcome funding for St Helens given the £90m cuts that St Helens Council has had to make annually, in large part because of the austerity policies of her Government. Yet this fund is like applying a plaster to a deep cut, simply not good enough. It is even more distressing that the Prime Minister appears to believe that the much-needed revitalization of high streets in the North West is only worth £281m over 7 years, but the purchasing of votes from the DUP to prop up her Government is worth £1billion. It is beyond belief that she thinks that this acceptable and I call on the Prime Minister to look seriously at the financial support that is needed not only for St Helens but for many towns across the North West.”
