David Ruffley MP joins campaign for rural funding

Friday, 18 May, 2012

David Ruffley MP has become a Patron the Rural Fair Share Campaign this week.

David Ruffley MP said: 'The Rural Fair Share Campaign brings together Members of Parliament and community groups who are concerned about the state of our rural communities, in order to work towards a fairer funding settlement.

Currently, urban areas have more investment per capital (on average £400 more) than predominantly rural areas. In these difficult economic times it is essential we move to a fairer allocation of limited public spending.'
