The Chancellor makes Cornwall a promise over storm repairs.
Speaking in Penzance during a whistlestop tour of businesses in the Duchy, George Osbourne said the government will give Cornwall the money needed to fix the damage.
The repair bill after huge waves and gales battered our coast from Newlyn to Bude stands at £21 million.
The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has already made a pledge that "money is no object."
The question from many locals: will the government stand by that pledge?
Questions: ITV Westcountry
Penzance Labour councillor Tim Dwelly challenged the Chancellor in the street to ask whether Cornwall will get all the cash needed.
He did not get a response: "What I wanted to ask him, and it's a pity he wouldn't be willing to talk, is will he pledge to carry out all the necessary works we need in this town, we've had 12 million pounds worth of damage, or are there the ifs and buts."

As well as visiting the scaffolding company that carried out repairs to the damaged rail line at Dawlish, George Osbourne is also visiting Redruth, Camelford and St Austell on Thursday.
