David, with an election looming, if you want to extend your tenure as our MP, please concentrate your efforts on the matters that the voters in your constituency care about; hospitals, schools and care for the elderly and disabled which have all suffered cuts under this government. I do not see why, as I local council tax payer, I have to pay for a study to be undertaken by Lancashire County Council. The rail companies have made enough money out of privatisation, let them fund it. The Northern Rail and Trans-Pennine Express franchises run out shortly. Let the bidders pay for the study and also explain how they are going to improve services at Carnforth.
