Lobbying for a fair deal for Croydon
12/01/2011 15:40:00

This afternoon, I joined the Leader and Deputy Leader of the Council in lobbying Grant Shapps, the Minister for Housing and Local Government, for an increase in the funding that the Government gives to Croydon Council.

Croydon has been getting a raw deal for a number of years now and although under the new Government we’ve no longer got the worst settlement in the country, we’re still not getting our fair share.

The Minister gave us a fair hearing and some of the changes he is planning to make over the next couple of years should help but the Council is going to have to take some very difficult decisions this year.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
