Suffolk MPs today met the Chancellor of the Exchequer to discuss the A14 improvement scheme and the proposed toll, following their meeting with the Prime Minister last month.
Whilst pressing the need for the essential improvements, MPs outlined wide concerns from businesses and residents that the A14 should not be the only scheme to be singled out for a toll.
Therese said: "It was another very useful meeting and we put across a strong case to the Chancellor. Suffolk MPs are united in continuing to press the case for the toll to be removed."
Therese added: "The petition I presented to Parliament last week shows the strength of feeling amongst local amongst residents and businesses who feel the toll is a tax on their success. We will continue to do all we can to stop this."
