Green support allows Labour to announce return to power in Leeds

Leeds City Council Green Group Press Release 

The Labour Group of Leeds City Council, with the agreement of the Green Group,  has today written to the Chief Executive announcing that they intend to form a Minority Administration which will take back control of the Council from the Conservative / Liberal Democrat Coalition that has run it for the past six years.

Councillor Ann Blackburn, Leader of the Green Group (Farnley and Wortley Ward), said:-

“Bearing in mind that Labour now have 48 of the 99 seats it would be undemocratic of us not to allow them to take control of Leeds City Council.  In doing so we have put forward some matters that are important to us as a Green Party and the Labour Group have agreed to work with us to implement them.”
