“Moreover an answer was sought as to why a commercial investment with borrowed money should be made by the council when the district is crying out for money to be spent on affordable housing.
“I, and the rest of my colleagues in Wealden Constituency Labour Party, will be interested to read Wealden District Council’s response to the points you have raised and are no doubt seeking a reply upon.”
