Ealing Gazette: "Councillor faces calls to quit over 'misleading' HS2 comments"


Link to Ealing Gazette

"Conservative Councillor Jason Stacey criticised Labour's Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, after a Freedom of Information request showed that Ealing Council had not contacted the Department for Transport (DfT) regarding HS2 despite claiming otherwise.

"But Mr Mahfouz spoke out to defend himself, saying he had written to the DfT twice, and in the past month had requested to meet with Transport Secretary Justine Greening to discuss the impacts of the high speed rail line on Ealing residents. He criticised the Conservatives for politicising the issue."
