Trafford Labour - Standing Up, not Standing By
What's happening here?
A motion to Trafford Council’s January meeting will call upon the government to action to protect fire service budgets in light of the superb job done by fire fighters whose role in tackling the recent floods across Greater Manchester went a long way to minimising the devastation caused. The motion – which calls for fire spending to be protected in the same way as Police budgets – will be moved on the 20th January. Cllr David Acton, the Chairman of Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Authority said in support of the Trafford Labour Motion to Trafford Council:
Trafford Labour Group has reacted with disappointment to the news that the government has awarded an exploratory fracking licence to the company Ineos, covering much of the Altrincham area. The licence is the first step towards fracking taking place in Trafford and opens up the possibility of a planning application for the controversial process to begin in the Altrincham area.
