Lib-Dems enter debate on council budget

Thurrock Liberal Democrats have responded to the Thurrock Council budget passed at the full council meeting on 29th March 2012.

Little Thurrock campaigner, Claire Jones, said: ‘I am completely amazed that the Labour administration has earmarked half a million pounds for the Thames Gateway Development Corporation to be merged with Thurrock Council. If it helps to bring the cost down, I’d happily help them move boxes down the corridor and change the sign outside the door.’

Chafford Hundred campaigner, James Donald, said: ‘It is astonishing that the Conservative group think that they can hand around a single side of A4 paper at the eleventh hour with budget amendments and expect them to be adopted. All councillors should work together to agree on such important matters, rather than engaging in political theatrics.’

Grays campaigner, Kevin Mulroue, said: ‘Thanks to action taken by the coalition government, the council tax has been frozen again this year. As all budgets are tightened in order to clear up Labour’s mess, this along with the Lib Dems in government delivering tax cuts for ordinary people will help thousands of Thurrock families.’
