2009 Challenges

December 29, 2008 10:46 AM

In a message to Beddington, Carshalton, Clockhouse and Wallington residents, Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington sets out the challenges for 2009.

"2009 is going to be a tough year financially, so I will be working with Sutton Council, local businesses, the Citizens Advice Bureau, voluntary sector organisations and people affected by the credit crunch to help minimise the impact of the down-turn on local people and local businesses.

"2009 will see a new phase in the battle for the future of St Helier Hospital with a campaign to secure the £150 million investment needed from the Government in this 1930s hospital.

"I hope 2009 will be the year that the x26 bus stop is re-instated in Beddington, giving local residents access once again to this vital express bus service.

"Finally for 2009, the momentum behind the struggle against climate change will have to be maintained. With all the evidence pointing to a rapid rise in world temperatures we must re-double our efforts locally to do our bit to bring global-warming under control.

He added,

"There are also some critical matters outstanding from 2008 that I hope to help resolve; the future of 'Your High', the shop selling drugs paraphernalia in Wallington, the campaign to secure justice for Robbie Hughes who was severely assaulted in Crete and, in London, the clampdown on knife crime."

    Send us your views

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.

    • If you agree, Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrats, and their elected representatives may use the information you provide to contact you about issues you may find of interest. Some of the contacts may be automated. You can opt out of these contacts at any time by contacting us.
