RoseMary Warrington, Candidate for Ilford South and David Reynolds, Candidate for Ilford North, have both been busy attending hustings around Ilford.
Local party member, Deborah Fink, represents David from the floor with his permission, posing several questions and presenting Green Party policy.
Green candidate Mr Reynolds hits out at the bedroom tax, branding it the “most pernicious since before the poll tax”.
Asked their views on PFI (private finance initiative) contracts, Green candidate David Reynolds said the party would look at buying them out.
The Green Party’s David Reynolds said privatisation of gas and electricity was a disaster.
RoseMary Warringon states "Many of the problems on housing are due to failures of this government in reducing social housing through both the right to buy and not allowing councils to build more." On environmental issues, RoseMary adds, "If we cannot breathe the air or drink the water then increasing shareholder values will not do us much good." Green candidate David Reynolds said the party wanted to focus on education, and also said anti-Semitism “can’t be tolerated in any form”
Mr Reynolds, who would abolish tuition fees, criticised Labour for originally introducing them.
