Brent Fairtrade Accreditation

Hidden in Brent's budget proposals is the option of ceasing the Borough's Fairtrade accreditation.  I can't help feeling that this is a retrograde step.  I was highly critical of the Liberal Democrats record on Fairtrade, and correspondingly proud that Labour achieved Fairtrade accreditation for Brent.  I have sometimes cited Fairtrade as an example of where having a Labour run Brent makes a difference.  I am not sure that not going for Fairtrade accreditation would actually make any financial difference, in which case there seems no reason to give up Brent's support for Fairtrade.
