Local greens pledge to end local privatisation

2 May 2018

 

Green Party councillors and all of our candidates across the country have signed up to the following pledge from WeOwnIt.

  • We believe our local council services should be publicly owned and run directly, in house
  • If a clear public interest case is made, services may be run by not for profit organisations
  • Our public services should never be run by private, profit-making companies or their subsidiaries. We will do our best to stop any new contracts being set up and to help our council end existing contracts as soon as feasible
  • We will support any new national legislation to make sure public services are only run by organisations which reinvest any surplus i.e. profit-making companies are banned
  • We will work for real transparency and accountability for public services in our area – helping local people to access information and make their voices heard
