Tuesday 03 September 2013

Fareham Councillor switches political group

Fareham North West Ward Councillor, David Whittingham, resigned yesterday as member of the UKIP group and requested that he wished to be treated as a member of the Conservative group with immediate effect.

The request was confirmed by the leader of the Conservative group and Councillor Whittingham has now re-joined Fareham Borough Council's Conservative group.

The result of these changes means that the political makeup of the council is 23 Conservative, 6 Liberal Democrat and 2 Independent Councillors.

 

ENDS

Notes to editor:

As a result of the change, the UKIP Group at Fareham Borough Council is no longer constituted as it now consists of a single member.  An individual councillor can remain a member of a political party but will be treated as an independent councillor.
