WELL over an hour of Thurrock Council’s meeting on Wednesday night was dedicated to the issue of children’s centres in Thurrock.
At the moment, there is a consultation on the future of a large number of the centres.
On Wednesday night, members of the public asked a series of questions to the portfolio holder, cllr James Halden.
That was followed by a motion put foreword by the Thurrock Labour group.
It was defeated. The Tory councillors voted against the motion, the Labour councillors voted for it and the UKIP councillors voted three ways.
