The leader of Cheshire East Council Michael Jones faced an attempt to pass a vote of no confidence in him. The motion was put forward by the borough’s Labour Group leader Coun David Newton and seconded by Labour colleague Coun Sam Corcoran.
However, the motion of no confidence against leader of Cheshire East Council Coun Michael Jones has failed. Instead a vote of confidence in Coun Jones has won at this council meeting, and the Labour members who put the motion forward have had the tables turned on them.
