Tories Condemn Plans for a 'Banqueting Hall'
£2 million project billed 'a crazy waste of money'
Cllr. Peter Thompson has blasted plans by Hounslow Council to develop a £2 million multi-purpose hall.
The plans for a new banqueting and conference centre in Hounslow recently moved a step closer after Councillors asked for an outline planning application to be submitted. The new facility, to be sited alongside the Civic Centre in a new extension, could be ready for use in late 2006.
Cllr Peter Thompson, the leader of the Conservative group on Hounslow Council, commented, "This so-called 'Multi-Purpose Centre' is really a crazy waste of money.
All the time we are told by Hounslow Council that they do not have enough money in the Budget to pay for the necessary improvements to our libraries, schools and old people's centres, and yet they seem to have found £2 million to spend on a centre for, ostensibly, wedding receptions and an annual awards
