HASTINGS and Rye MP Sally-Ann Hart has this lunchtime asked the PM to spend the money needed to boost our transport links from Ashford to Eastbourne.

She said: “Today at Prime Minister’s Questions I got the opportunity to highlight the need for improved transport infrastructure in our area, so that we can level up and improve the lives of all residents across Hastings and Rye.

I asked the Prime Minister to back the recent proposal from Network Rail for the High-Speed rail extension from Ashford to Hastings, (and on to Eastbourne) so that we can get faster journey times to London, and see high-skilled, high-paying businesses locate to our area.”
