Jim Cunningham occasionally rebelled against their party in this parliament
I was rather surprised that the Secretary of State did not make today’s statement, given that a quarter of the Government’s budget is spent by local government. He did the same thing the other day on the fire brigade. This announcement will not help anybody in Coventry to participate.
