Westminster Conservatives end 6 year ‘eye sore’ on Parliament Square

The 'permanent' protest on Parliament Square has been ended thanks to the dogged and determined work from your Conservatives Councillors in Westminster.

Leader of the Council Philippa Roe said: "For some time what is a public open space has been dominated by tents and encampments which have restricted its use. The High Court also took this view after a full and fair hearing. It concluded the protesters did not have the right to inhabit a public square designed for everyone to use." Throughout this process your Conservative Councillors have sought to find a solution by talking to the protesters involved. People will always be allowed to protest in Parliament Square – what is not reasonable is setting up permanent camps there. By moving them on the site is now open for the public and tourists to enjoy in an improved Westminster.
