Newham Lib Dems vote to support the committee structure

The Newham Liberal Democrats have voted to campaign for the committee structure in the referendum on local governance later this year.

They say:

we will be supporting what is officially called Committee Model, but is actually decision making by groups of elected Newham councillors. This system will ensure elected councillors will also have a say on decisions made by the council, ensuring differing opinions and voices are heard from across the borough.

Lib Dem leader of Sutton Council Ruth Dombey made a strong case for the committee structure at our meeting in December and we’re glad to see the local Liberal Democrat party agree with her.
