The Towns Fund is a fantastic chance for local areas to receive much needed investment. Some of our smaller towns often struggle to attract the institutional investment that the larger cities can attract, so the Towns Fund must forge ahead. This money will help to kick start essential infrastructure, or boost struggling high streets. 

So, hearing the Public Accounts Committee criticise how these projects were allocated is disappointing. That said, we mustn't let these imperfections stand in the way of progress - this money is critical for many of our towns, so let's crack on!
