At Saturday's successful Demonstration against the proposed closure of Huddersfield Accident and Emergency and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary Kirklees Green Party Leader Councillor Andrew Cooper called for all Council buildings and vehicles to be allowed to display 'Hands off HRI' and 'Save our A&E' posters.
Councillor Cooper said,
"At last Wednesday's Full Council meeting all parties on Kirklees gave unequivocal backing to the campaign to protect NHS Services in the area. A very tangible and visible example of that support would be to allow the Council's Town Halls, Libraries, offices and other public buildings to display posters and banners in support of the campaign to protect local health services. The Council could also allow its vehicles such as vans and even bin waggons to be used to display appropriate posters. We need to demonstrate that it is the whole community and the institutions that represent it that oppose these proposals. I will raise this idea with other Party leaders and the Chief Executive of the Council."
