Labour Group leader on Newark and Sherwood District Council calls on Newark MP and Local Government Secretary Robert Jenrick to commit 'proper' support to local councils

The Labour Group leader on the district council has called on Newark MP Robert Jenrick to clarify the government’s position on supporting local authorities as they emerge from the coronavirus crisis.

Paul Peacock said one of his biggest worries was the commitment to local councils, something he said stemmed from yearly government cuts to Newark and Sherwood District Council since 2010.

“Newark MP Robert Jenrick’s role as Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government means he is well placed to make the case for properly funded local councils,” said Mr Peacock.
