Tory MP Slams Reading Lib Dem/Tory Parking Permit Cuts
Reading Chronicle have published a story about the Reading West MP attacking his coalition colleagues on Reading Council and showing his ignorance about the scheme all at the same time!
Alok Sharma has finally woken up to the fact that the Lib Dem/Tory gang who briefly ran the council managed to slash residents parking permits by half LAST January, replacing the 20 all-day permits offered free to residents each year with 20 half-day vouchers.
The Labour run Council have acted swiftly to reinstate these cuts and have doubled the number of free half-day permits available a year to the 12,000 people living in residents’ parking zones from 20 to 40.
The Tory MP said residents were concerned about the lack of consultation by the Lib Dems and Tories over the January change from all-day permits.
Labour’s Transport Lead Cllr Tony Page said “Mr Sharma is making the point we were making last year when he was, as usual, completely silent. We are now having to put right many of the mistakes.”
