A SENIOR Thurrock Conservative councillor has called on Thurrock Council to look at the amount of taxpayer’s money spent on organisations such as Trust and ngage before slashing the budget of the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
Blackshots councillor Ben Maney was responding to a motion on the virtues of Workfare. Cllr Maney took the opportunity to question the ruling Labour group’s proposal to remove a major part of its funding to the Citizens Advice Bureau.
After cllr Maney had completed his speech, combative Tilbury councillor Lynn Worrall spoke and reminded cllr Maney that Thurrock was left with £40 million cuts to make.
Cllr Maney then suggested that they: “Start with Trust and Ngage”.
Trust is the anti-racism organisation based in the Thameside Theatre. Ngage is a community enabling organisation based at The Beehive.
