Welcome to Carshalton and Wallington Labour Party’s website
All meetings and face to face campaigning have been suspended for the present. Instead, we are campaigning on line and by phone as well as using our time to support members and those in our community who are experiencing problems due to the coronovirus situation.
Our members have been volunteering to provide support for anyone who needs help or support with shopping, deliveries, prescriptions, advice or anything else.
If you would like to volunteer your services, or would like to request support of any sort, please contact Ahmad (our Chair) on 077 992 14021

We have opposed the Clinical Commissioning Groups’ decision to remove acute services from St Helier and Epsom Hospitals and move to a new smaller unit in Belmont. This will result in an overall reduction in services and longer travelling times. We called on Sutton Council to refer the decision back to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care on the grounds that the wealth of evidence against the proposals was not properly considered and that the public were not properly consulted. Unfortunately Sutton Lib Dem councillors declined to oppose the decision or to justify their lack of action.
Fair heating costs for Hackbridge New Mill residents
We support the NMQ’s residents’ struggle to overturn the unfair energy charges levied by Sutton Council’s SDEN energy supplier
Proper consultation of residents about traffic schemes
The Lib Dem council’s Low Traffic Neighbourhood schemes were poorly considered and implemented. We support the aspiration to reduce traffic and improve air quality, but changes need to be introduced after listening to what residents need. Read more
Holding our local Conservative MP to account
Our local MP Elliot Colburn has made some disappointing decisions in deciding whether or how to vote in Parliament. He failed to oppose cuts to holiday time school meals, failed to turn up for the debate on cladding on tall buildings, voted against an amendment to protect our high food safety standards against foreign imports, voted against implementing WHO recommended air quality targets, supported Tory Mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey’s misleading and downright inaccurate claims about proposed tax increases by Sadiq Khan, and, most noticeably, failed to oppose the cuts to our local hospital. As one local commentator remarked, ‘He must be one of the only MPs to vote AGAINST retaining a General Hospital in his constituency’
