Ipswich Star: Parliamentary debate secured for Broomhill Lido on Monday 17 April.

Ipswich MP Tom Hunt has now secured an adjournment debate for Monday April 17 – a 30 minute discussion at the end of the Parliamentary day in the House of Commons Chamber.

“It will enable myself and other supportive MPs to talk in detail about the project and the potential benefits.

MPs and campaigners have been attempting to secure the necessary additional funding needed for the project, with Mr Hunt and Dr Poulter holding “productive meetings” on the matter.

“There are a few different avenues for funding, and it will likely end up being a combination of different funding streams that secure the project,” said Mr Hunt.

“I’ve been struck when talking to constituents about Broomhill the emotion that often is displayed.

“Many have very fond memories of the Lido when it was open.

“I really hope we can get it over the line. This week has been a good week, but nothing concrete has been delivered yet.”
