Robert Halfon presses chancellor on cash funds for Harlow Town Centre

HARLOW MP Robert Halfon rose on the floor of the House of Commons to stress to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Kwasi Kwarteng, the importance of the levelling up fund bid is to improve Harlow Town Centre.
Film of the exchange is below.
The money isn't coming. Don't waste your time
Levelling up, what about levelling up the roads. FIX THE POT HOLES.
Halfon is trying to distance himself from the incompetent lot running his party. Would not surprise me if he moved to be an independent in the coming General General election. He's an opportunist and should stand aside.

Questions for Robert - Does he still want the people of Harlow to give Librium Liz "a chance" or not? If so why, when he clearly says something different to the 1922 committee. Or if not, why not? If you have such little faith in your leader and PM, why are you not calling for a General Election now?
