The Prime Minister has made an economic pledge to Cornwall today - setting out plans to create 15,000 new jobs, 5,000 new primary school places, and more money for the local NHS and roads.

He also said he would make a sports stadium for Cornwall a priority. The Cornish Pirates rugby club, which supports the Stadium 4 Cornwall campaign and would want to move to a future stadium, reacted positively to the promise.

We welcome the Prime Minister’s comments and now look to local politicians to deliver what the people of Cornwall want and need ... We remain 100% committed to working with the other Stadium Partners on taking our scheme for S4C back to Cornwall’s planning committee in June.

– Ian Connell, Chairman of the Board, Cornish Pirates
