Conservative candidate for Harrow East, Bob Blackman, has lent support to new Tory plans to give private groups the responsibility for saving and running public buildings and services, including post offices and libraries.
Discussing the Community Right to Buy proposals, Blackman said:
“Under Labour, local neighbourhoods in Harrow and across the country have lost too many essential local services and facilities. Gordon Brown’s Government has closed post offices and driven local pubs into the ground.
People feel powerless to stop their communities losing access to vital services and facilities. So the Conservatives will give bold new powers to people in Harrow to protect and improve vital community assets and preserve the social fabric of our neighbourhoods”.
