Chorley traders put their views to the heart of government today after a visit from a top politician. Justice Secretary and Cabinet Minister, The Rt Hon. Chris Grayling MP, joined prospective Conservative MP for Chorley, Rob Loughenbury, at Chorley covered market. A crowd of Conservative activists were on hand, listening to voters ahead of the Lancashire County Council elections scheduled for Thursday 2nd May.
Rob Loughenbury said, “The covered markets are Chorley doing what it does best, with hard working traders selling fresh local produce and other goods. The minister and I came here today to listen to the grafters who get up early, work hard and pay their way, and to hear what further support they need.
Conservatives are committed to making work pay, which is why we are introducing a benefits cap, which means that no one can earn more on benefits than the average working household. For reasons beyond me, Lindsay Hoyle and Labour oppose this.
Lancashire Conservatives are leading the way in helping working people with the cost of living, by cutting council tax and investing £42 million in jobs and apprenticeships. A Conservative vote on Thursday 2nd May will get you more of the same.”
