Statement on Alexandra Palace

Following the announcement by the Alexandra Palace and Park Charitable Trust confirming that a formal letter of claim had been received from solicitors acting for Firoka:

Cllr Robert Gorrie comments:

“This is yet another chapter in the sorry tale of Labour’s handling of Alexandra Palace.Yet again Haringey’s taxpayers will have to pick up the bill for Labour incompetence.Faced with the pressures of the recession and on top the of the millions lost in Icelandic banks and the desperate need for investment in our children’s services, this couldn’t have come at a worse time.”

Lynne Featherstone MP adds:

“This is an unwelcome distraction for the leadership of Haringey Council. They should be focusing all their energies on rebuilding key front-line services and helping people through the financial crisis, not having to deal with the financial incompetence of Labour’s past.”
