As a Health minister for the Conservative
Party, Caroline has shown that she is looking for climate change friendly ways of improving roads from
existing highways such that air quality is improved and vehicles of the
future may be serviced. If only our own MP, Nus
Ghani was doing the same, perhaps with the backing of Ann
Howell and Susan
Stedman. Wealden seems to have forgotten that car ownership per
household in the South-East is higher than other areas of the country.

FLEET NEWS 22 JANUARY 2018 - GOSPORT MP SUPPORTS EV INFRASTRUCTURE
Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage has said that air quality will improve with an increased EV infrastructure.
Dinenage made the comments during a visit to a Hampshire-based petrol station, which had installed an InstaVolt EV charge point.
The MP, recently named Minister of State at the Department of Health and Social Care, echoes sentiments raised by Ministers
Jesse Norman and Claire
Perry, who recently wrote to UK councils urging them to apply for the Department for Transport’s Chargepoint Scheme, following reports that funding for thousands of electric car charge points has remained unused by councils.
Dinenage visited the Lee-on-the-Solent Service Station to ascertain how private companies are working together to speed up installations.
“We’re in a real chicken and egg situation when it comes to cleaning up the UK’s toxic
air problem,” she said.
“We know that swapping older, more polluting cars for electric vehicles will help to reduce toxic air. But we can’t expect motorists to buy
electric cars unless there’s the infrastructure there to charge them.”
InstaVolt has has installed two rapid chargers at Lee-on-the-Solent Service Station, and claims that it will be installing thousands of charge-points across the UK at places like gyms and council car parks.
InstaVolt’s chief executive Tim Payne said: “Sales of electric vehicles are on the rise, with record market share for plug-in cars in December.
“Caroline is absolutely right when she says we need to create a reliable charging infrastructure to encourage more people to go electric and, ultimately, help improve air quality in the UK.
"That’s why companies like ours are working day and night to install thousands of chargers all over the country.”
Dinenage added: “It’s great to see two local companies coming together to make our roads an even easier place to drive an electric vehicle.”

PLEDGE - According to her website Caroline says: "I have a track record of securing investment, safeguarding jobs, and backing businesses in the Gosport area. In 2010 I pushed for the Daedalus site to become one of the Government’s Enterprise Zones. Over £50 million has now been invested and the site houses the CEMAST centre of excellence for engineering skills training and an Innovation Centre for small businesses.
I helped to secure over £25m of Government funding to build a new peninsula access road (the Stubbington Bypass) as well as funds for other local highway improvement projects including Newgate Lane North & South, St Margaret’s roundabout and Peel Common
roundabout. By supporting local apprenticeships and skills training, the Gosport constituency now has the highest number of apprentices in the South-East.
I will continue to focus on four key issues:
1) Improving transport links
2) Maximising the potential of the Daedalus Enterprise Zone
3) Backing small businesses and attracting investment into the Gosport peninsula
4) Supporting education and training
As a truly local candidate who has lived in South Hampshire all my life, if re-elected I will continue to stand up on the issues that matter most to my constituents."
CLIMATE - Michael Gove has been summoned to Brussels because of his
party's failure to meet air pollution targets despite warnings about
which the Prime
Minister was aware of.
United Kingdom has many political parties, some of which are
represented in the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

Democratic and Labour Party
are concerned with how the make up of the above parties and (reasonably)
popular policies may affect the Wealden district, because we are all
brothers on two islands in the Atlantic
Ocean and what we do or fail to do is likely to rebound on ourselves
and our fellow man in other nations around the world. How we act today
influences policies in other countries in our global community. It is
not just about us and our patch.
