In topical questions to Kwasi Kwarteng MP, The Minister of State, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Grahame Morris MP asked about the Horden Housing Masterplan.
He said, “Significant economic activity is ready to be unlocked by the Horden Housing Masterplan, developed by Durham County Council. The scheme ticks all the boxes; it would benefit small businesses, the green economy, improve housing, and support the Government’s levelling up and build back better agenda, so will the Minister support the plan, and help bring much-needed investment to my constituency?”
The Minister replied, “Of course I’d like to inform the Honourable Gentleman that we are very supportive of any schemes in this country which promote the net zero agenda. I’m very interested to hear about the details of his scheme in his constituency and I’d be very happy to meet him and other people to discuss these matters further.”
