THREE Labour Councillors from Hillingdon, London, have been suspended whilst an investigation is carried out into allegations relating to their conduct.
Councillors Mohinder Birah and Jagjit Singh, who both represent Yeading ward, and Councillor Jas Dhot of Barnhill ward, were all absent from last week’s council meeting following the Labour Party’s hushed decision, and are currently sitting as independents.
Mystery currently surrounds the exact circumstances surrounding the suspension of the duo, with council insiders simply telling VoteWatch that the matter relates to their conduct online.
A Labour Spokesperson told VoteWatch: “We can confirm that the three councillors have had the whip removed”.
We will provide an update shortly.
