A Statement from Hastings & Rye CLP

Hastings Labour councillors have absolutely not done any sort of deal with Reform councillors. This is a barefaced lie.

Hastings Labour put forward a number of well-qualified candidates for positions at the council AGM on Wednesday, and we are pleased that every single one of our brilliant candidates received support from a majority of councillors.

We will now continue the work of supporting our residents through the cost of living crisis, and building a better Hastings.
