Valerie Vaz MP slams closure of Face-to-Face Council Services

“It is unacceptable that the One Stop Shop and other frontline services remain closed. When my constituents who need support or just to pay their Council Tax arrive at the Civic Centre, all they find is a sign that says ‘Walsall Council is closed until further notice’.

With a cost of living crisis the Council has a responsibility to help residents who are in need. Some of my constituents cannot or do not know how to contact the Council using the internet, including some vulnerable residents.

The Conservative-led Council have made services harder to access when my constituents most need them. The whole country has returned to its work, and so should the Council.”
