Liberal Democrats have reacted to the news that the government have delayed the decision to reorganise local government in Suffolk.
Commenting on the proposal to set up a constitutional convention Lib Dem Group Leader Kathy Pollard said “I would welcome the opportunity to sit on a cross party convention to discuss the future of local government in Suffolk. However, I must say that the process so far has been very unsatisfactory and a complete waste of council taxpayers’ money.”
“It is clear that the Boundary Committee have not listened to local authorities, the majority of whom wanted 3 councils in Suffolk rather than one or two. In my opinion this will now be a dead duck. I’m sure it will not be a priority for a new administration after the General Election.”
