Motion text

That this House welcomes the redevelopment of the former Blyth Power Station into a battery making gigaplant; notes that that development will create up to 3,000 local jobs; recognises the benefits of the reopening of the disused railway line that forms part of the former Northumberland line to that power plant; notes that reopening that railway line will re-invigorate the areas of Ashington and other communities in the South East Northumberland area; and calls on the Government to ensure that funding and expertise is provided to help reopen that railway line as quickly as possible.
