The comments made by Greg Hands, the Levelling Up Secretary, on 28 July 2022.
The commissioners’ report has assured me that the current intervention measures remain necessary in Slough. Councils must deliver for the people they serve – which is why I am minded to expand these measures to deliver swift and long-lasting improvements.
Whilst this decision is not taken lightly, difficult decisions must be taken to protect hardworking taxpayers.
I am confident that Slough Borough Council will continue to work closely with commissioners to address their challenges and I hope to see more progress imminently.
