Have your say

This week, I tabled a motion at the Full Council meeting of Nottinghamshire County Council asking that the council support the People’s March for the NHS which will be coming through towns in Nottinghamshire, including Hucknall.

This motion was passed 34 to 28 with all Labour County Councillors supporting the motion.

Many readers will be aware of the Jarrow March of October 1936, where 207 men and their MP, Ellen Wilkinson, marched from Jarrow to London to present a petition to the Prime Minister demanding that something be done to end wide scale poverty and unemployment in the area.
