Permanent cruise liner terminal for Liverpool
Thanks to a Conservative Government, we've seen the superb cruise terminal built in Liverpool - a very welcome investment in such a vital sector for this region. In 2015, Jacqueline was particularly pleased to welcome Cunard's 'Three Queens' to the River Mersey and our iconic waterfront as part of their 175th Anniversary. This special event attracted 1.2 million visitors and generated more than £30 million for the local economy. Jacqueline continues to lobby for additional expansion in this very important area.
