Conservatives ‘playing for time’ with school closure decision delay!

Liberal Democrat Councillor Don Wright has commented on the County Council’s Cabinet decision regarding King EdwardVII School. 

He said: “The level of protest from the people of Melton, Opposition councillors and other interested parties was so high that the Conservatives have been forced into playing for time. Even the local Conservative councillor spoke in support of the retention of King Edward School in its present form as a 11- 19 school.  The cabinet are to consider an option proposed by the governors of King Edward VII, once it has been analysed by officers and the cabinet will reconsider this situation on the 15th December.  

The Conservatives have five weeks to dig themselves out of a big hole and they will need a very large shovel, we remain concerned that despite postponing the decision the Conservative administration will eventually reinstate their original proposal to close King Edward VII.”
