“IT’S FINE FOR BUILDERS TO KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON, BUT NOT PARLIAMENT – IT SEEMS WRONG TO ME” [PETER KYLE MP FOR HOVE] + “IMPOSSIBLE TO NAVIGATE PLAN” – WEST SUSSEX COUNTY TIMES – MARCH 26 2020

After it was announced yesterday [March 25 2020] that Parliament would shut down a week early “to prevent any further spreading of the virus”, a deeply-concerned Sussex MP said today:
 
“It’s fine for builders to keep calm and carry on, but not Parliament – it just feels wrong to me”
 
It feels wrong because it is wrong – just as it is wrong for Horsham District Council not to extend this Monday’s deadline for comments to their Local Plan [‘Impossible to navigate plan’, West Sussex County Times, March 26].
 
If national and local government have the power to shut down schools and cancel examinations, they have the power to shut down construction sites and extend local plans.
 
 
Richard W. Symonds
