FIGHT for the Wight campaigners have a new minister to convince when it comes to getting government recognition of the Isle of Wight's unique funding situation.

Sajid Javid MP has replaced Greg Clark as the Local Government and Communities minister in new prime minister Theresa May's cabinet.

Greg Clark visited the Isle of Wight in June on a fact-finding mission, to better understand the Island's unique funding problems.

However, he indicated there would be further cuts to come and gave little hope for more funding, before a review of local council funding was concluded in 2019/20.

Fight for the Wight champion and Isle of Wight County Press editor Alan Marriott said: "I hope the new minister will come with a new mindset on how local government is financed."

Sajid Javid was Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills under the previous prime minister, David Cameron.

The 46 year old is a former banker and minister for culture, media and sport.
