Yesterday (11.01.22) in Westminster Hall Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham brought forward a debate to discuss the government refusal to deliver Beam Park station in the south of his constituency. The Labour MP has been running a campaign to force the Department of Transport to change its position since the news broke in August 2021.
The campaign calling for the government to reverse its decision and deliver Beam Park station is being brought to Parliament by Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham.
Jon has been making the case for the much needed station to be allowed to go ahead and has now secured a debate at Westminster Hall on Tuesday 11 January.
Following last week's revelations which highlighted the Government had pulled funding for a new station on the Beam Park development site, Jon Cruddas MP has now learned that the proposed new c2c station was fully funded by the Greater London Authority and developers. In addition to the construction, the GLA and London Mayor's office had also offered the Department of Transport £10million to protect the Government against the cost of operational deficit for the first 10 years.
