Here are the latest stats for the number of Fixed penalty Notices issue for dropping litter in Hammersmith and Fulham:
November 2014: 0
December 2014: 0
January 2015: 0
This confirms the trend since Labour took over. Under the Conservatives a thousand litter bugs a year used to each get fined £80. This – remarkably – had an impact on discouraging them from dropping litter and helped ensure that we had cleaner streets.
Under Labour the message has gone forth from Hammersmith Town Hall – that litter bugs can act with impunity.
Labour have no mandate for this change council policy.
It is a complete disgrace.
