Extraordinary meeting to take place at Havering Town Hall following defection of Tory councillors to Ukip

PUBLISHED: 18:00 31 August 2013

The defection of three Tories to Ukip last month has triggered a meeting to discuss the make-up of committees on Havering Council.

Councillors Sandra Binion, Ted Eden and Fred Osborne switched to Ukip last month, meaning the Conservative group is now overrepresented on the council’s 15 committees and sub-committees, while Ukip is underrepresented.

The meeting, which is public, takes place on Wednesday at Havering Town Hall.
