Letter: A political move

Have your say

I have heard serious well-considered concerns over the trolleybus scheme expressed by councillors from all parties, and I fear that the Government plan for a local referendum prior to any investment in transport (YEP, May 10) may well further politicize the debate. This would be a pity.

All good citizens would surely support additional funding in order to improve the inadequate transport structure of our region, but I suspect that in the light of the trolleybus scheme many would hesitate doing so, unless our authorities can demonstrate more clearly that they would use the money raised intelligently and for the general good of all.
