Fighting for a fair deal for Cornwall

Fighting for a fair deal for Cornwall

As Member of Parliament for North Cornwall, I am proud to represent the community I grew up in. I still live here, and I’m now raising my own family in Bodmin, with my wife, Heidi.

This website allows people to observe my work both in Parliament and in all the different parts of North Cornwall. The constituency has sixty five parishes and I try to get to all of them regularly, to meet residents, and to listen to their concerns, so I can raise the issues that matter to people here when I speak up for us in Westminster.

Representing the people of North Cornwall in Parliament is an honour and contact with my constituents is key. On this site you will find details of how to contact me in person, by email or by post. Please contact me if there are any issues that you would like me to pursue on your behalf.

- Dan Rogerson.

Government support for Cornwall’s tourism industry following floods

Government support for Cornwall’s tourism industry following floods

Local Lib Dem MP and Minister for Flooding Dan Rogerson has welcomed the announcement of a £2 million fund to help tourism businesses in the wake of recent flooding and storms.

The investment will put experts on the ground in hit areas to give practical advice and support to tourism businesses. This will include helping them to communicate effectively with their customers online, give advice on what business support measures are available and how to access them and marketing their businesses so that tourists know what is still on offer.

VisitEngland has also launched an online toolkit<http://www.visitengland.org/flood-response/index.aspx> offering advice to help businesses affected return to trading as soon as possible.

Dedicated marketing campaigns from VisitEngland will help promote affected areas to both domestic and overseas tourists in the run-up to Easter and beyond.

Last month Dan Rogerson accompanied Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to meet with Cornish tourism chiefs in Newquay to discuss the impact of the floods and storms on the local economy. Dan has also been discussing the concerns of communities and businesses in North Cornwall, such as those in the village of Trevone where roads, footpaths and beaches have been damaged by the recent storms.

Dan Rogerson said:

“Many local businesses, from tourist attractions to bed and breakfasts have raised their concerns with me about bookings being down for Easter and a perception that Cornwall isn’t open for business.

“Nothing could be further from the truth. The Coalition Government are making sure that tourism businesses get the help and advice they need, whilst at the same time letting people know that it is business as usual in Cornwall.”

Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said:

“The new support we have announced today will help flood hit communities across the country get back on their feet. In the run-up to the Easter holidays this extra funding will help maximise what local areas can offer to visitors and holidaymakers. We remain committed to supporting households and businesses affected by the recent floods and will continue working with them over the coming months.”
