Portsmouth Labour Party are disappointed to hear of the resignation of Cllr Ferrett this morning. It is also regrettable that Cllr Ferrett did not inform Portsmouth Labour party of his decision to stand down.
We would like to thank Cllr Ferrett for his work with the Labour Party.
It must also be noted that less than six months ago Cllr Ferrett was elected as a Labour councillor. We hope that in calling a by-election he will give the residents of Paulsgrove the opportunity to have their say on his decision to leave the Labour Party.
