Andrew Gwynne responds to the resignation of Surrey County Council leader

Andrew Gwynne MP, Labour’s Shadow Communities and Local Government Secretary, responding to the resignation of the leader of Tory controlled Surrey County Council, said:

“This Government’s appalling lack of support for local government has forced out the Tories’ own council leader.

“After years of continued austerity, the services that we all rely on have reached a dangerous tipping point and has left yet another Tory Council in crisis.

“Even Tory Council leaders are now confirming that austerity is not over.”
