Slough Borough Council

  1. Labour retaining majority in Slough is a 'great result,' says MP

    The Labour Party has retained its majority in Slough.

    Slough Labour Group had 11 councillors out of 14 voted in, with the party gaining a seat in Upton.

    Two seats in Foxborough and Langley Kederminster were lost to the Conservatives and councillor Madhuri Bedi retained her seat, but this time as an Independent.

    Reacting to the win, Slough MP Tan Dhesi said: “I am extremely grateful for the good people of Slough for continuing to bestow their trust.

    “Within the very difficult national context, I think it is a great result for the Slough Labour Party and we will continue to work hard on your behalf."

    Slough Borough Council is now made up of 35 Labour, five Conservative, and two Independent councillors.

    In Slough, electors voted for candidates in 14 of the 15 wards, with Colnbrook with Poyle the exception.

    There are 14 seats for grabs at the council and electors could also vote for a candidate standing for Thames Valley Crime and Police Commissioner.

    Slough is not counting on Friday but is instead verifying the ballots for the local election and Police and Crime Commissioner.

    This involves counting the total number of ballots cast in each election and must be completed before a count can commence. Once that’s completed, counting of all 14 wards will begin on Saturday, May 8, at the Centre in Farnham Road.

    Counting will start at 0700 BST and is expected to end 12 hours later.
