More needs to be done to resolve homelessness in Kingston
Your local Lib Dem Focus team believes in giving a voice to those who don't have one. We also believe in challenging authority when things look wrong. So it was only natural to question some of the inhumane practices, including the disposing of "personal effects", put in place by Kingston authorities early this year regarding the homeless population of central Kingston.
Local councillor Jon Tolley said, "No one has the right to take away the belongings of the homeless! We will continue to work hard to manage the relationship between residents and businesses, but never forgetting that rough sleepers should have their human rights protected."
