Blame Tory cuts for Wirral streetlights' switch-off
12:57pm Tuesday 17th December 2013 in Letters
I WRITE in response to the article in the Wirral Globe regarding my decision to restore lighting to the North Wallasey Approach road.
I took this decision having listened to the concerns of roadusers.
Regarding the comments of Tory councillor Leah Fraser, it really is the height of hypocrisy for her to criticise me on this issue as Wirral Council, in common with many other local authorities in the north, is being forced to consider such measures due to the massive cuts which the Tory-led Government has made to our budget.
May I respectfully suggest that rather than criticising me, her time would be better spent lobbying her colleagues in government to reverse these damaging cuts?
Finally, Cllr Stuart Kelly is quite wrong. I did not over-rule my cabinet member on this matter as, unlike the Liberal Democrats, we work as a team.
Councillor Phil Davies, Leader of Wirral Council
