• Cllr Christine Robson – Education and Social Services for Children and Young People

Council Leader Cllr Graham Henson said: “Over the past 14 months the council has faced significant challenges responding to the Covid pandemic, we are often reported as saying that it has been relentless, with services stepping up, many working seven days a week, from early morning to late at night, the response has truly shown the value of local government.
“I will be eternally grateful for the work portfolio holders and their teams have all put in during this time in response to the pandemic, not just in Harrow, but sub-regionally and across London.
“As we all know the recovery will be very challenging and so, to reduce pressure in some areas, I have formally announced my revised cabinet for 2021/22.
“I would like to welcome Cllr Natasha Proctor and Cllr Peymana Assad into Cabinet and Natasha for her new role as deputy leader of Harrow Council. They are extremely challenging roles with great expectations from everyone.
“Natasha and Peymana have shown their commitment to Harrow, being part of the community and I am totally confident that they will do this borough and council proud – for all of our residents and businesses.
“I am also so proud that younger people are coming forwards into Cabinet and that it has gender balance.”
