The Supreme Court Decision was very clear. It is now for Parliament to reach a decision. The Prime Minister has made it clear that this must be on the basis of cross party support. Given that support exists at the moment, there is a chance that Parliament might reach a final decision before the next Election. However, this is a once in a generation decision with a great deal still to discuss. So it is also possible that it might spill over into the next Parliament. In the meantime I will continue to work with local residents to try and win the argument for better mitigation and compensation in our area.
