Dear Department for Transport,

I would like to know how much it will cost the Government, and therefore the taxpayer, to

a) pay the owners of the Manston Airport site for using it as a lorry park


b) the additional costs of policing, signage etc by extending the problem from the M20/A20 to the A2/A299

Yours faithfully,

Ruth Bailey

Department for Transport
