STATEMENT FROM LEWISHAM LABOUR GROUP OFFICERS

Lewisham Labour Group welcomes the findings of the Dyson Inquiry into the New Bermondsey/Surrey Canal proceedings relating to the decision to compulsory purchase land currently leased to Millwall football club.

We wish to emphasise that the remit was to establish whether Council members and officers behaved legally and properly during these processes and are pleased that the Dyson Inquiry has done that. We also wish to stress that these findings in no way validate the initial CPO decision and that those issues will be looked at in the coming weeks and months.

Further, we condemn the attacks in the media on fellow councillors – particularly those threatening physical abuse in social media on Cllr Paul Maslin. Members, rightly or wrongly, take their decisions in what they see as the best interests of the community. To subject them to the level of abuse encountered by Cllr Maslin is completely unwarranted and unjustified. We would ask those members of the public involved, no matter what their affiliation or where their sympathies lie, to desist.

To mark White Ribbon day on 25th November, Lewisham Labour has again pledged its continued commitment to never commit, condone or remain silent about the violence against women and girls.

Mayor Bullock made an announcement at the Full Council meeting on November 22nd highlighting Lewisham’s continued support of outlining the need to tackle violence against women, and challenge social attitudes and behaviours that lead to gender based violence.

Cllr Janet Daby, Cabinet Member for Community Safety, said “This day gives us an opportunity to put a spotlight on the continued prevalence of violence against women and girls in our communities. This is an issues that affected so many women and girls, it shocking that the statistics show that 1 in 4 women and girls will suffer domestic abuse and 1 in 5 will experience sexual violence.”

“It is clear that is can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender identity, sexual orientation or culture.  This why is so important that we send a message to all parts of our communities that any form of violence against women and girls is unacceptable and we need tackle it together.”
