John Stevenson MP for Carlisle will be meeting with Carlisle City Council leader Colin Glover to discuss a recovery programme for Carlisle.
John has spent the last few days speaking to constituents, businesses and Government to ascertain what help is required and the level of assistance that is available to Carlisle and Cumbria.
John said ‘Following the tragic floods that have destroyed homes and affected businesses in Carlisle I am keen that those affected are helped as best they can be. I am already supportive of schemes such as Cumbria Community Foundation who is fundraising to assist individuals. I am also in discussion with Government to ascertain the level of help that they can offer.
However we have to look longer term and a recovery programme must look beyond the next few weeks. I will work with Carlisle City Council and offer them any support or assistance necessary as regards to recovering the City following this terrible flood.’
