Last Friday saw the recall of Parliament to agree on sending air support it Iraq to help the Iraqi Government combat the Islamic State.

I voted with the Government on Friday as I believe we have a duty in this Country to come to the aid of our international partners who ask for our help.

We must not give in to terrorists and the British people have always shown their resilience in the face of terrorism.

My sincere condolences go out to the family of David Haines, who was murdered by these terrorists.

This week sees the end of the consultation period for the Wind Turbine proposal at Heysham Port by Peel Energy.

This application is for a single 77m high turbine , and I have been inundated with people expressing their objection to this proposal.

As I am sure many of you will already know I am firmly against all onshore wind turbines and I too will be submitting a letter of objection to this application. If you would like to write a letter of objection please send your letter to the Planning department at Lancaster City a Council (dm@lancaster.gov.uk) and quote the reference number 14/00938/FUL.

Following my delivery of the Broadway traffic petition to Parliament ,County Council Officers met with myself and the local action group, led by Judith Fletcher, and listened to the residents concerns.

The County Council have agreed to conduct a new traffic survey including pedestrian movements and will then come up with a new plan for traffic management in the area to present to residents. I am pleased with this outcome as the safety of residents should always be of paramount importance to the County Council.

As always I am happy to help with any issues you may have. You can contact me by phone 01524 841225, email david.morris.mp@parliament.uk or by post Office 204, Riverway House, Morecambe Road, Skerton, LA1 2RX.
