Lewisham Labour Group wish to refute recent comments in both mainstream and social media implying Lewisham councillors have not acted with the best interests of Lewisham residents at heart – in particular with regard to the New Bermondsey regeneration scheme – and are therefore issuing the following statement:
"All members of Lewisham Labour Group, be they executive or non-executive members, work and apply themselves in their public service in the best interest of Lewisham. Whichever committee or area of responsibility, each endeavours with integrity, sincerity and probity to use the reports, their experience and perspective to inform their decisions. They do this in the belief that their decisions will benefit the residents and businesses of Lewisham. In that cause, we are united and supportive of one another."
