Phil Doyle defends litter fines

 PD Cllr Phil Doyle writes:

Dear Councillor Tolley,

Around £2 million of Council Tax payers’ money is spent each year cleaning up litter. This is money that the Council could be using to support local families, help local businesses and use to make life better for the people living in our Borough.
