Dr James Walsh is the new Leader of the West Sussex County Council Liberal Democrat Group.  Cllr Walsh is the re-elected member for Littlehampton East.   Former Leader Morwen Millson is now Deputy Leader and was re-elected as member for Horsham Riverside .

The County Liberal Democrat spokespeople are as follows:

Children and Young People’s Services Select Committee – Francis Oppler                                                                      Environment and Community Services Select Committee – Nigel Dennis                                                                                      Health and Adult Social Care Select Committee – James Walsh                                                                                                  Performance and Finance Select Committee – Morwen Millson or Robin Rogers

Morwen Millson said:  “The Liberal Democrats will continue to hold the Conservative Cabinet to account by asking searching questions in scrutiny committees and in Council and exposing failings through the media.  Several of our members have significant expertise in the areas they are scrutinising, such as Transport Planner Dr Nigel Dennis on the Environment and Community Services Select Committee, and former GP Dr James Walsh on the Health and Adult Social Care Select Committee.

“Over many years, Liberal Democrats have put forward constructive proposals that have subsequently been adopted by the Conservative Cabinet and we will continue to do this over the life of the current council.”
