Walthamstow stadium: “This is not over,” pledges Duncan Smith as campaign turns fire on Boris

Work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith in his capacity as MP for Chingford and Woodford Green will on Tuesday meet his cabinet colleague Eric Pickles, the communities and local government (CLG) secretary, for urgent discussions about the fate of the famous Walthamstow greyhound racing stadium amid claims that Boris Johnson has misled Londoners about the viability of a controversial scheme to redevelop the site, and that officials in Pickles’s department colluded with the London Borough of Waltham Forest to prevent Pickles using his powers to intervene.

Duncan Smith will be accompanied to Tuesday’s meeting by the area’s other local MP, Labour’s Stella Creasy, to make a joint request that Pickles examines a trail of alleged irregularities in the progress of the plans and looks at its full financial history.
