When one goes on the website

IT’S another full council meeting up at the Town Hall tomorrow evening, including the session where backbench and opposition councillors can ask council leader Sarah Hayward and her cabinet colleagues anything pressing about council policy. Absolutely anything.

  1. Perfectly reasonable question from my colleague. Richard – don’t you agree with Roger Freeman on this? Seems unnecessary and inappropriate control. Bet you policy changes as a direct result.

    Hi Andrew.

    I have no problem with press releases being open to all. I’m glad to say the CNJ’s ‘page leads’ rarely stem from a press release handout.

    But in terms of the question, I would’ve thought that since Labour’s results at the 2014 local elections, opposition questions were quite a precious resource and that opportunities to challenge policy are limited. In that context, it’s interesting, in these pages of the agenda, to see where opposition councillors see the Town Hall’s most pressing failures lie.
