Truss – ‘I remember those painful hours sitting through planning committees’

Express

“I will …rip up red tape that’s holding back housebuilding and give more power to local communities.

“As a former councillor, I remember those painful hours sitting through planning committees.

“I’ll put power back in local councillors’ hands who know far better than Whitehall what their communities want.”

So allowing cllrs to refuse anything within 5 minutes so they can get to the pub before last orders then?

I believe she was a Greenwich cllr (eltham South) 2006-2010
