On Wednesday evening I attended the full meeting of Bury Council. After the recent “Full up” signs during the debates on pay and regrading the public gallery was back to a more usual number – 3.
The main debates were on extending Disability Living Allowance for Blind Persons which was moved by Councillor Yvonne Wright (Con. Tottington) and on the problems caused by the current economic recession. Both motions received support from all three parties.
It was perhaps appropriate as the Council was meeting on 5th November that the Report from Outside Bodies this time was from the Fire Authority and Councillor Jack Walton (Con. Church Ward) gave a full and comprehensive report.
