Merton Council’s Cabinet changes

Merton’s Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, Councillor Maxi Martin will lead on all areas previously covered by Councillor Peter Walker from today.

Councillor Stephen Alambritis, Leader of the Council, said ‘Councillor Peter Walker has done excellent work expanding our best performing schools to provide more places for local children. However his conduct captured on YouTube is wholly unacceptable. It is not the way we do business. I have therefore immediately dismissed Councillor Walker as Cabinet Member for Education. Councillor Maxi Martin, who is in overall charge of Children’s Services, will take over.’
