MSP Responds to Tory Desertion of Moray Council

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has responded to the news Tory councillors in Moray have quit the Council’s administration.

Seven of the eight members walked away from the administration on Monday.

The move was made following a row over the authority’s senior management structure and disagreement over how best to modernise the council.

Moray Council had been run by a coalition of Tories and Independents until yesterday.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“A majority of Tory councillors walked out of the Moray Council administration which is no surprise. Running a local council, and the challenges that exist in doing so, were obviously too much for Councillors who are more used to simply opposing a second independence referendum.

“Moray needs a stable and effective administration as it deals with a number of challenges and needs representative that puts the needs of the people and communities first, led by principle, leadership and vision.”
