Luke joins the outrage of Plymouth and other coastal workers, saying:

“This report reveals the scale of inequality imposed on people in our coastal communities by almost a decade of austerity under the Conservatives. Our coast is one of Britain’s greatest assets but the people who live there have been let down by a lack of investment and poor infrastructure.”
