Westminster spends over £12,000 on Commemorative Lions

lion-Labour councillors have questioned the Conservative council’s priorities as it has emerged Westminster is spending £12,223 on two commemorative lion sculptures to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the creation of Westminster City Council.

The lions are due to adorn the front of City Hall on Victoria Street. However as City Hall is about to undergo major renovation works in the next few months the future for these luxury lions remains unclear.

Labour group leader Cllr Adam Hug said, “Given the huge cuts across the council is pushing through now and in the coming years, spending over £12,000 of taxpayers’ money on commemorative lions is not the best use of scarce resources. Yet again Westminster is putting pomp and pageantry before the needs of residents”.
