A month after I wrote to Southampton Test MP Alan Whitehead asking for him to back my campaign for new school in Shirley Road, I have received his response.
His letter is very short and gives little or no commitment to the plan for a new school. He remains well and truly on the fence. I was hoping that he would back the idea and use his influence as an MP to lobby for Government funding for the project. It is really disappointing that whilst all three political parties on the city council back the idea, the local MP doesn't appear to want to commit.
