Lib Dem Council Leader speaks after Budget meeting

This morning the Sefton Council cabinet met at Southport Town Hall to recommend a budget to put to the full council this evening. The Lib Dem group having been working hard to come up with a budget that will produce a 0% council tax rise and sensibly handle the reductions in expenditure that are being demanded of us as part of the overall deficit reduction plan.

Labour so far have not produced an alternative budget proposal . They have voted against most of the reductions in expenditure but to date they have not made a serious attempt to produce a budget. All hot air and no substance from Labour so far. Their whole opposition stance has been based on a view that cuts are not necessary and they even voted against reductions in senior management!
