New Bill to boost growth and infrastructure

New Bill to boost growth and infrastructure

Gordon Henderson MP has welcomed the Government’s new Growth and Infrastructure Bill, which boosts infrastructure, cuts excessive red tape, and backs local business.

This wide-ranging Bill will support rural areas by removing the red tape that hinders the roll out of superfast broadband in the countryside, get building going on stalled housing sites and backs local businesses by delaying an unpredictable business rates revaluation.

Commenting, Mr Henderson said:

‘This new Bill is great news for Sittingbourne & Sheppey and England as a whole. It will support the aspirations of hard working people by reducing the bureaucratic barriers that stop our local businesses from creating jobs. These are exactly the sort of practical reforms we need to reduce confusing and overlapping red tape, which we all know acts as a drag on both the local and national economy.

‘By boosting Britain’s infrastructure, cutting excessive red tape and backing local firms the Government has shown it understands that the country is in a global race to sink or swim. Tough decisions need to be taken to ensure Britain is on the rise and this Bill gets behind exactly the right people – the strivers who are our engine of progress.’
