Councils Seminar

Posted by davidburbage on September 13, 2009

Invited by the Shadow Treasury and Local Govt team to speak at a Conservative Councils Seminar, last week I jumped at the opportunity.

A good session was had, and together with Hammersmith and Fulham, Essex, Kent, Wandsworth, Westminster and East Sussex leaders we exchanged ideas, experiences and lobbied (and were lobbied by) some senior colleagues who could, in a few short months, be Cabinet chiefs themselves.

It finished with an address by George Osborne in front of the media which resulted in some good national recognition for Windsor and Maidenhead in particular and Conservative Councils in general.
