MP reacts to local government reorganisation announcement

July 21, 2021 7:45 PM

Commenting on this evening's announcement from the Government about local government reorganisation in Cumbria, local MP Tim Farron said: "It speaks volumes about how little the Conservatives care about Cumbria that in the middle of a pandemic, when we're trying to get the economy back on track they decide to force on us a full-blown reorganisation of our local councils.

"But as these new councils start to take shape, Liberal Democrats in Cumbria will be committed to making sure that these new authorities are totally focused on the big issues that matter to local people like affordable housing, social care and the environment, as well as continuing to work hard and serving local residents all year round".
