Letter: Shropshire Star

Wright not right over regional assembly

In July last year, David Wright MP wrote to me and said “I do not think there is any desire at present for either a parliament for England or indeed regional assemblies”.
I wrote to him a couple of months ago and asked him if he would now support an English Parliament following numerous polls showing overwhelming support for the establishment of one.

A BBC News poll showed that 84 per cent of people were in favour of an English Parliament. Unfortunately, Mr Wright decided not to give me his thoughts on the matter on this occasion.
I received a large envelope full of correspondence from Telford & Wrekin Council regarding the West Midlands City Region.

A number of the e-mails regarding the City Region involve none other than David Wright MP — the personal private secretary of David Milliband who was, until recently, Minister for Regions.
Is there not something fundamentally wrong with Mr Wright working against his constituents’ wishes in helping to set up another unelected regional government with no public consultation at all?
