The failure of this Tory-run council shows that their approach to managing our public services doesn’t work – Gwynne

Andrew Gwynne MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, commenting on Northamptonshire County Council issuing a section 114 notice, said:

“The failure of this Tory-run council shows that their approach to managing our public services doesn’t work.

“There have been deeply worrying reports for a number of months that this council was failing in its duty to the people of Northamptonshire – and now these people will pay the price for this negligence.

“Next week, the Government must use the Local Government Finance Settlement to provide genuinely new money to fund our public services.”
