Chancellor in town supporting Conservative cause

Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid was in Hastings this morning visiting local businesses as part of the General Election campaign.

Speaking while on a tour of one the Focus SB factories and standing alongside Conservative candidate for Hastings and Rye Sally-Ann Hart, Mr Javid said the Conservative message was ‘resonating on the doorsteps’ of the constituency.

He said: “People want to see Brexit done and know the Conservatives are the only party that can deliver that with a deal. Then we can focus on the people’s priorities and keep our economy strong.”

Mrs Hart said: “I’m delighted to have welcomed the Chancellor of the Exchequer to Hastings, to see a local business that’s doing big things.”

With less than three weeks to go it feels like the campaign is moving up a gear. Tomorrow Mrs Hart and Nick Perry of the Liberal Democrats have confirmed they will attend a demonstration on the site of the old bathing pool to hear first hand local residents concerns about plans by Hastings Borough Council to develop the site, they are still waiting on confirmation from Labour’s candidate and council leader Peter Chowney about whether he plans to attend or not.

Next Thursday there will be a hustings featuring all four candidates, organised by the Hastings Independent Press, at Sussex Coast College.
