The Cabinet Member for Local Services & Community Safety gave his annual report to the City Council meeting yesterday afternoon.
The report, which you can read here, is an astonishingly complacent document. It offers no vision for how the Council intend to respond to the Government’s Localism Act or share more power with local people. On the unprecedented cuts to policing – probably the most serious community safety issue facing our city – the Cabinet Member offers no comment at all.
As the Labour Shadow Cabinet Member for Local Services, I responded to the report on behalf of the Opposition at yesterday’s meeting. You can see my speech by clicking here.
