Councillor Greg Stafford, Opposition Leader, has responded to Ealing Council's Labour Cabinet statements about the uncertainty of funding and cuts. He says,
“On the 11th October, ALL Members agreed to accept a four year financial settlement from the Government and per the Council’s own report: In doing so, the Council is provided with certainty of funding and a degree of protection from any further reductions in excess of those already announced.
This report was moved by Labour Cabinet Member for Finance and seconded by the Leader of the Council. For both to therefore continue to peddle this lie about uncertainty of funding and further cuts is disgraceful and shows they are unfit to lead.
People want and should rightfully expect their politicians to have some degree of integrity; something that is clearly lacking on the Labour side.”
