This is a survey
being conducted by the Newham Council Labour Group’s Working Group, who
are considering what alternative governance model should appear on
the ballot during the planned referendum that is a Newham Labour
manifesto pledge. The decision on the alternative governance model will
be taken at a meeting of Newham Labour Group that will be held by 15th
October 2020 and we would like your views to feed into the process.
pledge made in 2018, was to hold a referendum on the future of the
current Directly Elected Mayoral model with a clear alternative so that
Newham voters can decide which governance model is best for Newham
Council. The date put forward by Newham Labour Group will be set
following further conversation with the National Labour Party and
subject to the Coronavirus Laws.
