Morecambe MP David Morris backs Eden Project North supporter Boris Johnson

David Morris MP says he backed Eden Project North supporter Boris Johnson as the Prime Minister won a vote of confidence.

Mr Johnson won the ballot within the Conservative Party, despite 148 of his own MPs voting that they no longer had confidence in him as leader of the party.

David Morris MP said: “I voted to support the Prime Minister last night and I am pleased that he won the vote of confidence as Boris Johnson is a strong supporter of the Eden Project coming to Morecambe.

"We are now at a critical stage where a funding application for the necessary Government funding is being made to the Levelling Up fund which will see the project a reality.

"Boris Johnson’s support has been critical in securing an avenue for this application, and I look forward to welcoming him in Morecambe when this once in a generation opportunity is announced, which will be a game changer for the future prosperity for our community.”
