Joint Statement from Havering and Newham Councils22 November 2013 in Council and democracy
“On behalf of Havering and Newham Councils and the people of both boroughs we condemn these offensive, intolerable and wholly unproven remarks.
“Staff of both Councils already work well together irrespective of their backgrounds including in our shared services pilot. They work hard for all residents in both boroughs.
“We are proud of our boroughs, our people and the staff of both Councils. We call on Councillor Tucker to immediately make a full, unequivocal and public apology for the offence he has so clearly caused.”
