Independent Deepings councillor requests decision to set aside £100,000 for ceremony to unveil Margaret Thatcher statue is reviewed




South Kesteven District councillors will have to reconsider their plan to underwrite a £100k launch event for a 10ft statue of former PM Margaret Thatcher in the centre of Grantham.

Independent Councillor Ashley Baxter, representing the Market and West Deeping ward, requested the call-in for the scrutiny committee, which could reverse the controversial decision by the Conservative leadership.

Coun Baxter said: “The decision has been taken entirely by local members of the Conservative party without even a proper opportunity for discussion, let alone a vote.”
