The Government can no longer ignore the crisis in Northamptonshire council – Gwynne

Andrew Gwynne MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, commenting on Northamptonshire council, said:

“The Government can no longer ignore the crisis in Northamptonshire CC.

“Hard working staff at the Council and vulnerable people in need of care should not be forced to shoulder the burden for Tory cuts and mismanagement. The Government has no option but to send in commissioners to take over the running of the council.

“Almost eight years of Tory austerity isn’t working. It’s not working for Northamptonshire and it’s not working for England.”
