Motion text

That this House commends the previous council administration in Northumberland for its profit for social purpose development company Arch and its formation of a charity called Active Northumberland to ensure that leisure and cultural provision in Northumberland was not damaged by significant cuts to the council's central government grant; notes that since 4 May 2017 there have been a number of changes to both Arch and Active; and calls on the Government to seek an independent review of the actions so far which have cost the council taxpayer over £36 million in connection with the changes at Arch and Active Northumberland.
