Blair's Islington about to fall to Lib Dems
Thursday 13 May 1999
After weeks of deliberations, Islington has received legal advice that concludes that Labour councillor Sheila Camp is not eligible to hold office, The Independent has learned. Presiley Baxendale, the QC who grilled Baroness Thatcher during the Scott Inquiry into the arms-to-Iraq affair, has recommended that Ms Camp be disqualified under the 1972 Local Government Act. Labour and the Liberal Democratshave 26 councillors each, with Labour retaining power on the mayor's casting vote.
