Should Hartlepool Mayor Stuart Drummond cut the number of councillors on his cabinet committee?

Mayor Drummond will wait until after the local election in May before deciding whether to reduce the size of his cabinet committee.

He chairs Hartlepool Borough Council’s nine-strong cabinet committee.

But he has been quizzed over whether he would be reducing the size when the number of councillors is slashed by around a third from 47 to 33 after the election in May.
