    Article: May 22, 2015

    The Mayor of London needs to come clean over his stance on extending the 'right to buy' for housing association tenants was the clear message he received at Mayor's Question Time today.

    Speaking after Mayor's Question Time, Stephen Knight AM, the Liberal Democrat London Assembly housing spokesperson said:

    The questions below are those asked by the Liberal Democrat group in Ealing following a large number of questions which they had been asked concerning the proposals by Labour-run Ealing Council to introduce two wheelie bins.


    The Liberal Democrat party in Ealing feel that the proposals do not address the concerns of many residents in the borough, especially the lack of space to store two additional wheelie bins. Also because the Council has not managed to efficiently collect waste and recyclables, and keep our streets tidy, over the past three years there is little hope that they will be able to manage these proposed changes.

    In this May newsletter we update you on the local General Election result, petitions handed in concerning wheelie bins and the cancellation of parking permits and the 30th Anniversary celebration of Gunnersbury Triangle Nature Reserve.

    General Election news

    In the Ealing Central and Acton seat, the Conservative Angie Bray lost her seat to the winner Rupa Huq. This follows two local elections where the number of Conservatives have been halved to twelve. In the general election Liberal Democrat candidate Jon Ball came third.

    After the election Liberal Democrat Jon Ball commented: "Although the elections were disappointing for my party, the new Conservative government is now very likely to support expanding Heathrow. The Liberal Democrats at every level are against Heathrow expansion."

    Since the polls closed at 10 pm last Thursday, over 10,000 people have joined the Liberal Democrats, and here in our local party we have seen our membership jump by over 20%

    Parking permit cancelled by Ealing Council without consulting users

    Ealing Council made a decision at the end of last year to reduce the number of groups who were eligible for parking permits. This included the organisers of the Buddhist Vihara on The Avenue, many of whom do not live in the area.

    Sadly they were not consulted and their initial requests for information were ignored until local Southfield Liberal Democrat Councillors got involved.

  • Jon Ball at the launch of the 2015 Liberal Democrat manifesto.
    Article: Apr 15, 2015

    Today the Liberal Democrats lanched our manifesto for the General Election with plans to balance the books but to do so fairly.

    Ealing Central & Acton candidate Jon Ball, who was at the launch, commented on what he feels are the most important policies for Ealing:

    "Firstly, we in the Liberal Democrats are committed to investing an extra £8bn a year in the NHS by 2020 to enable our health service to cope with medical inflation and an aging population. This would mean an extra £57.6m a year extra for the Ealing Clinical Commissioning Group to spend on healthcare here in Ealing.

    In Ealing, voters will make their choice on who should represent them on May 7th.Liberal Democrats in government have successfully turned around the poor state of the economy - where we were shedding over 1,000 jobs a day when we took over from Labour - into the fastest growing economy in the G8.

    We have a sound platform to continue the good work that the Liberal Democrats have done as part of the coalition government.

    Ealing has seen investment to improve many core services. We have delivered:

  • Petition: Apr 8, 2015

    The undersigned are against Ealing Council forcing residents to have two wheelie bins to store their waste, when many homes do not have the space. We are also against a fortnightly collection of household waste. Ealing Council needs to think again.

    Local Councillor Gary Busuttil attended a Council Scrutiny Panel meeting where the topic of wheelie bins was discussed. He raised the fact that many properties are not big enough to house the proposed two wheelie bins plus any garden waste container.

    After the discussion the position of the Labour administration is as follows:
