Nick tries to save Newent House

April 25, 2007

At last night’s Council meeting Nick Kilby launched a bid to secure the future of the day centres at Newent House, Surbiton and Hobkirk House, New Malden. In a speech proposing a rethink of the policy of the Lib Dem Executive, Nick called for priority to be given to the needs of the most vulnerable in society. He also challenged the two Lib Dem MPs for the Borough to come clean about their stand on the subject.

Nick’s motion was supported on a recorded vote by all the Conservatives (21) and by both Labour members. All the 23 Liberal Democrats present, including the three from Berrylands, which includes Newent House,  voted against Nick’s motion. The motion was lost on the casting vote of the Mayor, Cllr. Mary Reid (Lib Dem, Chessington North & Hook).
