County Council Cabinet put 'Catholic Tax' decision on hold

I am absolutely delighted to report that at a meeting of the Cabinet of Leicestershire County Council earlier today Conservative politicians decided to put a decision introducing a faith school transport 'Catholic Tax' on hold.

The Cabinet papers do not report as to why the deferral decision was made, or for how long the hold will be for (or for that matter whether the recommendations will simply and quietly slide away - as is often the case with unpopular reports).

I truly hope that the Cabinet heeded the concerns of so many Leicestershire residents who took the time to make their views known - and in doing so tabled the largest ever e-petition to Leicestershire County Council.

We must all continue to be vigilant to make sure these discriminatory proposals do not sneek back on to the agenda.

It may be a cliche but whilst the battle is won the war may not be over.

Thank you all so much for your support.
