PM "Has Not Forgotten Cornwall"

(Updated 5:52am 7th July 2014)
David Cameron tells Pirate FM there's "a strong case" Cornwall should be in charge of how it spends millions in European funding.
It is amid fears the Duchy could be forced to hand over control to the government.
Officials warn that would hit our chances of new jobs and improving infrastructure.
But the PM insists Westminster has not forgotten us: "When I say infrastructure is a key part of our long term economic plan that doesn't just mean our railways. It also means our roads, we've got investment going into the A30, we've got the Camborne/Redruth link which is going to be improved before the middle of 2015.
"I've been listening very carefully to the Conservatives in Cornwall who've made a really strong case about how Cornwall should be able to have greater freedom in how to combine these monies and spend them on the things that people in Cornwall need and I'm very hopefully that we're going to make some progress."
