Yesterday Danny Alexander MP made a statement in the House of Commons on ‘Investing In Britain’s Future’. I asked him about this Government’s poor record on delivering its promises on infrastructure.
Mr Ben Bradshaw (Exeter) (Lab): My constituents in Exeter saw under the last Government five new high schools, several new primary schools and a new medical school, but so far, in more than three years, they have seen absolutely nothing of what this Government have promised on infrastructure. Why should they believe anything the right hon. Gentleman has said today, given his appalling record at delivering what he has already promised?
Danny Alexander: If the right hon. Gentleman were giving a balanced account, he would also have referred to the flood defences we are investing in, and the local road project around Exeter that has been completed.
