Harrow will get 'Tory run council through the back door' says Labour leader Cllr David Perry
An opposition councillor says the calls for a council leader vote will lead to “a Tory run council through the back door.”
The comments come after Conservative leader Susan Hall called for a council meeting later this month to elect a new leader of Harrow Borough Council.
Cllr David Perry, leader of the Labour group said: "The Labour Group is really concerned that whilst the Conservative-Independent Coalition running Harrow Council is in-fighting, the people of Harrow are not getting the attention on our service which is very much needed.
“We find it incredible that one minute Susan Hall and the Tories are supporting a coalition with the Independent Group, the next minute they are getting huge pay rises paid for by the tax payers and then now we see that their political ambition for power was their motive all along.
“The people of Harrow elected a Labour administration and now it seems we could get a Tory run council through the back door.
“The destabilising coalition agreement clearly has not worked in Harrow and so it is left for the Labour Party to pick up the pieces and be the party on the side of residents.”
An extraordinary council meeting is due to take place in September 16, which could be the date of the leadership vote if permission is granted by the Mayor of Harrow.
