I visited Ipswich in an official capacity. Following the spending round, this engagement formed part of a wider programme of visits in East Anglia to reinforce the Government's commitment to invest in transport to secure future growth.

I have received representations from hon. Members from across the region requesting a meeting to put the case for strategic investment in the East Anglia rail network, led by my hon. Friend Miss Smith.

In Ipswich I met with my hon. Friend Ben Gummer, my hon. Friend Miss Smith and my hon. Friend Priti Patel.
