Michael Jack M.P. for Fylde ‘most concerned’ about effects of a barrage on ‘outstanding’ Ribble.

Michael Jack M.P for the Fylde is ‘most concerned about this proposal and will be watching very carefully to see what the effects of Preston’s current thinking is on the river and its estuary which I acknowledge is a place of outstanding importance particularly as far as bird life and biodiversity is concerned’.

Michael Jack is also the Chairman of the Parliamentary Environment Committee, which is currently urging the Government and Local Authorities to heed the Environment Agency's advice about not building on flood plain.
