Local Authority Budget Cuts

I continue to receive cases and queries on cuts to local public services and I know how soul destroying it is for local Councillors and our Mayor at the moment.

The Government continues to press ahead with savage cuts but there is simply nothing left to cut! At the same time they appear to be offering sweetheart deals to councils such as Surrey!

This week I joined our Mayor Paul Dennett, Councillor John Merry Barbara Keeley and other key figures from Salford business to meet Communities and Local Government Minister MarcusJones. All there spoke very passionately about the human impact of cuts on Salford people and how it was also stopping our local economy from thriving.

I just hope he was listening…….
