Sale Of Westminster Cemeteries

EDM number 564 in 1989-90, proposed by Tony Banks on 16/02/1990.

That this House notes the publication of the District Auditor's report on Westminster's three former cemeteries at Mill Hill, East Finchley and Hanwell, sold in January 1987 for 15p; further notes that the Auditor found the cemetery sales to be unlawful, unauthorised and to the detriment of ratepayers; believes that total responsibility for this whole scandalous affair rests with the Tory leader of Westminster Council, Lady Shirley Porter, whose arrogant behaviour makes her unfit to hold public office; and calls for her immediate resignation, the re-acquisition of the cemeteries by compulsory purchase and a ministerial enquiry into the affairs of Tory-run Westminster Council.

This motion has been ammended, see 1184A1.

This motion has been signed by a total of 49 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
