Suella Fernandes, MP for Fareham, sat down with Theresa May in parliament to lobby the Conservative leader for improvements such as the long-sought after Stubbington Bypass and for improvements on the M27, notably at Junction 11.

A decision on the bypass is expected to be released in the autumn statement later on this month.

Both Miss Fernandes and Gosport’s MP Caroline Dinenage have called for the funding to secure the implementation of the bypass in the last year.
