Leadership vote 'sad day for the people of Harrow' say Labour
The leader of the Labour group says the result of last night’s leadership meeting was a “great disappointment”.
The comments come after Councillor Susan Hall was voted in as leader of Harrow Borough Council, giving the authority a Conservative administration.
Labour group leader Cllr David Perry said: “Last night’s leadership result was a huge disappointment.
“However it will not deter me and the Labour group in Harrow from continuing to put the interests of the residents at the forefront of our efforts.
“Harrow Council has suffered enough from the national Tory Government cuts, and now we have Susan Hall who will push through David Cameron’s cuts in welfare, and other services that the most in need people in Harrow rely upon.”
A spokesman for the group said: “The leadership vote was a sad day for the people of Harrow, because not only has democracy been ignored, but also front line services are at risk of further cuts.
“The council has been destabilised yet again by Susan Hall’s personal ambitions and she has played politics at the highest level with yet more back room deals.”
