Reid: Time for Scottish Government to halt Council cuts
Alan Reid, Liberal Democrat candidate for Argyll & Bute, has called on the Scottish Government to halt its plans to press ahead with half a billion pounds’ worth of cuts to Council budgets.
Mr Reid said: “The £500 million cut to Council budgets will hit Council services throughout the country. All Councils are proposing severe cuts. In Argyll & Bute, the grant the Council receives is simply not enough to provide services across this vast area.
The £500 million cut is a choice of the SNP Government. I hope they will reverse that decision now for the sake of school children, the elderly and all who rely on services provided by Councils.”
