Reverb Politics Show Jan 2018 - Setting the Council budget

Jan 14, 2018, 06:00 PM

This month we delve into the challenges faced by Councillors to set a budget against a background of continued central government funding cuts.

A legal budget must be set, otherwise government officials will impose one. However, with a decrease in funding from the government, it can only mean cuts in services, job losses and an increase in Council Tax bills. We talk to the politicians at the heart of the decision-making.

Joining us are Councillor Les Hamilton, Labour; Councillor Ollie Sykes, Green Party and Councillor Andew Wealls, Conservative Party.
