Letter: Your Say - Lottery bid benefit; In association with POST OFFICE.

Byline: Glyn Pitchford

BIRMINGHAM businesses were disappointed to read the Birmingham Mail's report "A Black Day for Brum's Bid" (December 4) which claimed Minister for the West Midlands Liam Byrne's support for the Black Country in the pounds 50 million Big Lottery contest is bad news for Brum.

If every person across the Midlands voted for the Black Country to get the Lottery cash, this would help drive inward investment into the Black Country and to its neighbour Birmingham, helping to create new jobs in our city.

That is why the West Midlands Business Council is backing the Black Country.

Cycle lanes in Sutton would be nice, but voting for a 12 mile park linking the town centres of Walsall and West Brom, the unveiling of forgotten caverns under Dudley and doing up Wolverhampton's canals would help drive tourists to Birmingham and the Black Country and would encourage potential inward investors to decide that creating jobs in Birmingham and the Black Country would make sense because this is where all the action is.

Back the Midlands by voting for the Black Country by going to www.thepeoples50million.org.uk
