Labour Leader Speaks Out On Tory Councillor Fraud Allegations

Wandsworth Labour Leader  Rex Osborn has given the following statement following news reports about Cllr. Morritt:

‘The allegations of misuse of Conservative funds are very serious, and may be a matter for the police. We welcome the move by Cllr Govindia to suspend Cllr Morritt from his committee responsibilities while the matter is investigated, but it would be wrong to delay a full explanation until the start of the suspension in October. Answers must be given now.

There are questions to be answered about when these allegations were first known to the Wandsworth Conservatives. If there is any evidence that they have covered up wrongdoing from as far back as 2010, they must say so and explain what took place, before this affair damages the reputation of Wandsworth Council.’
