“How can we make a judgement if we do not have the information on the specific effects on our area? This piecemeal approach is not the way any rational government would go about a consultation on possibly the largest capital infrastructure project in generations. Indeed it discredits the whole process. I am not willing to lend my support to a project for which I have no details of the implications for my constituency.”
