Josh,

Great to meet you last week.

If we are going to examine manifestos from 2010 perhaps you will make yours available? In 2010 we were all very anxious about where local government funding would fall so the 15 million was as much as we thought we could offer at the time.

Since then Labour has found the cash for an empty car in Southall (2.5 million) and three new council offices, a refurbishment of Ealing Town Hall and very expensive York stone paving around the Town Hall and Perceval House, about 12.5 million in all. So apparently there was more scope for capital spending and our preference would have been for the roads outside people's houses to be resurfaced rather than spend the money on distant municipal baubles.

You are wrong on the numbers. Labour will allocate 17.5 million in its time in office. Very happy to go through the numbers in the cabinet reports with you. The figure Bassam Mahfouz quoted was a strange one. It included 6.5 million allocated by us for 2010/2011 and the next two financial years. I have had this confirmed by officers - very happy to forward the e-mails.

Your assertion that the process is as it should be, an objective one driven by a survey and officer advice, is undermined by your own statement that Mill Hill will appear on the list. The list has not been published yet and it certainly hasn't been shared with me as opposition spokesman on transport. I can show you letters from Labour Northolt councillors that claim that they influenced this process. The South Acton councillors said as much at their ward forum.

Very happy to hear that Mill Hill Road will be on the list when it is published next week. It sure needs it as do many other Acton roads.
