How to engineer a 6 week traffic jam
Report by Labour Councillors Stephen Hubbard and Isaac Igwe
Medway Labour is concerned about Council inaction over the state of repair of hundreds of retaining walls across the Towns, which have potential to collapse at great cost to taxpayers.
We challenge ministers to offer credible and detailed proposals for tackling the problems inherent in the high-cost credit sector.
Medway Labour campaign across Rochester, Chatham and Gillingham for the Tories to drop the bill which would privatise our NHS by the back door.
Medway Labour Group have called an emergency public meeting to discuss the proposed closure and privatisation of care services in Medway.
It is clear that the local Tories, who also purport to be against the airport proposals, do not have any voice at all when it comes to influencing their central party.
The Labour group are extremely concerned by the proposal put to Medway Council’s Conservative Cabinet, to privatise or scrap vital adult social care services.
The next local election will take place on May 7th.
The Labour group are disappointed to see that the controversial proposals for an airport in the Thames Estuary are once again gaining news coverage.
The Labour Group were disappointed at last week’s Council meeting to see that Cllr Les Wicks is still unwilling to accept responsibility for his failings and stand down.
