Public meetings postponed as a mark of respect for Sir David Amess MP

18 October 2021

Statement from group leaders

 As a mark of respect for Sir David Amess MP following his tragic death on Friday 15 October, political group leaders at Thurrock Council have together agreed to postpone all public committee meetings and other meetings involving external groups and partners due to take place this week (Monday 18 October to Friday 22 October 2021).

This approach is supported by all group leaders and the Mayor of Thurrock as we stand united as a public service family at this incredibly difficult time. Thurrock Council has offered its assistance and condolences to colleagues at Southend-on-Sea Borough Council.

Our thoughts are with Sir David's family, friends and colleagues.
