More pow­ers are re­turned to coun­cil

The Wharf - - The Week -

More pow­ers have re­turned to Tower Ham­lets Bor­ough Coun­cil after com­mis­sion­ers noted “sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments” since the scan­dal-rid­den Lut­fur Rah­man years.

Coun­cil­lors will again be able to award grants to not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions and re­gain pro­cure­ment over­sight – moves which Tower Ham­lets mayor John Biggs called “a real vote of con­fi­dence” and Com­mu­ni­ties Sec­re­tary Sa­jid Javid called “a pos­i­tive step”.
