I understand that Cllr Roxanne Mashari has resigned from the Brent Cabinet. The resignation follows the controversy over the Granville South Kilburn development when she appeared to have been made the scapegoat for lack of consultation when the actual decisions had been made by Cllr Butt who holds the property portfolio.

Neither Butt nor Cllr McLennan, deputy leader, were at the Scrutiny Committee where Cllr Mashari had to answer critics, including Cllrs John Duffy and John Warren.
Cllr Butt, in addition to his own duties as leader, is currently temporarily holding the Children and Families portfolio.
