Next, Laura Sandys, the Tory candidate for Thanet South:
1. Do you support repealing the ban on foxhunting?
NO I would not support the re-introduction of fox hunting.
2. Do you support night flights from Manston airport?
No I do not support night flights from or to Manston
3. What is the single most effective measure you would support to reduce crime, unemployment and deprivation on the island?
There is no one single measure that can reduce all these really pressing issues on the isle but employment and education is the key to success, with much more beat policing to prevent crime. I have as a candidate launched two specific projects that aim to increase jobs in the area – a tourism initiative to promote our out of season historical tourism and I also hosted a Marine Energy summit in Ramsgate bringing here a significant number of investors from the marine energy sector not least a major turbine manufacturer. I believe that we have to work extremely hard to secure more jobs in the area and having already started as a candidate I would really welcome the opportunity to take these and other initiatives forward if I was elected as the Member of Parliament.
