Funding for Le Tour?

A North Yorkshire MP has warned tomorrow "could be a rocky day" as organisers wait to find out whether they have secured funding to help Yorkshire host the Tour de France in 2014.

Julian Smith, who represents Skipton and Ripon, will meet Culture Secretary Maria Miller tomorrow to discuss the bid for cash.


Have arranged meeting with Maria Miller and Conservative MPs to try to nail funding for @letouryorkshire could be a rocky day tho!


I hope #budget2013 will bring a nice double digit announcement - fingers crossed - #Yorkshire will make the most of it if it happens
