Justice Secretary Fails Redbridge Residents

Leader of the Redbridge Council, Jas Athwal is extremely angry that David Gauke the Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary visited Redbridge Town Hall on Friday but did not have the courage to meet the him, Cabinet Members, MP's and importantly residents affected by crime.

Mr Gauke’s position is above politics and he has a responsibility to work with us to reduce crime and make our residents feel safe.

Cllr Jas Athwal, Leader of the Council said “Mr Gauke was clearly afraid of having to receive some tough questions, and unseats chose to have a cosy cup of tea with Conservative party members, I have written to him asking he explain his poor behaviour”

Councillor Athwal’s letter also seeks an urgent meeting with the Justice Secretary to discuss the issues he clearly finds important in Redbridge.
