Hospital party vows to go on

Have your say

MEMBERS of the Action to Save St John’s Hospital party have vowed to keep campaigning despite losing all their seats on West Lothian Council.

Councillor John Cochrane stood down at the election, but the party put up eight candidates in all, including former councillors Gordon Beurskens and Ellen Glass.

In a statement, it said: “We take responsibility for the outcome of our election campaign, and we wish the future administration of the council well.”

The group will hold a campaign meeting at Kaim Park Hotel, Bathgate, at 7.30pm on May 31.
