This article is old - Published: Saturday, Dec 30th, 2023

NOTE TO EDITORS: David Davies MP has contacted me with his response to the comments from council leader Mary Ann Brocklesby.
The council leader’s response has been criticised by Monmouth MP Mr Davies who said the authority cannot just dismiss its own transport plan. 
He said: “Mary Ann Brocklesby’s response is not acceptable, this is the council’s report. 
“Monmouthshire County Council can’t run from their report which talks in two places about lobbying to bring tolls back. They can’t suddenly dismiss it and say they’ve no intention of doing it. Clearly there is an intention that’s why it’s in the report, it can’t be in there by mistake. 
“They have to take responsibility and not pretend it wasn’t there in the first place or they’re not actively considering it.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
