Mayo wants new era of co-operation

Co-operatives UK Secretary General Ed Mayo has signalled his organisation’s willingness to work with the new Conservative/Liberal Democrat Government at Westminster.

Said Mr Mayo: “Co�’operatives UK looks forward to working with the new government to place co�’operation at the heart of the UK economy and society where it belongs.

“There is common ground between the two parties and that includes co�’operative solutions for the economy and for communities, both of which we have been campaigning for.”

He added: “Britain is the birthplace of co-operation and a new coalition government based on co-operation between these two political parties could, we hope, help to spark a new culture of dialogue and collaboration. Co-operatives favour action for a more equal society because we believe that more equal societies, economies and businesses, are better for all those who live and work in them.”
