Dr Liam Fox MP criticises North Somerset Council over General Election count

Dr Liam Fox MP, Member of Parliament for North Somerset has criticised North Somerset Council over their plans to scrap the traditional General Election count at Nailsea and instead hold at a location outside of the North Somerset constituency.

Dr Fox said “It seems to me they will need the same number of people to do the counting simultaneously whether they are in the same location or not.  Voters in North Somerset who traditionally have their votes counted in Nailsea will see this as further centralisation to Western-Super-Mare from the new North Somerset Council administration”.
