Resolution: Diane Abbott MP

The Regional Council Executive endorsed this resolution on behalf of the Regional Council at its meeting on 9 February 2010.

This Regional Council has been informed that Diane Abbot MP supported the former Mayor Ken Livingstone’s policy to privatise the East London Line. Also she did not sign the Early Day Motion regarding the issue.

If this is true then Ms Abbot has broken the policy of this union and the principles of our Parliamentary Group.

This Regional Council calls on the Council of executives to investigate this matter and if it is found that Ms Abbot did support this policy she should be removed from our parliamentary group and no financial assistance given to her constituency in the forthcoming general election.
