Manchester Cuts, Birmingham Next?

 by phil , Wed Feb 09, 2011 12:12 pm

Manchester is one of the worst hit Councils by the planned government cuts and they have started to wield the axe. Cuts announced are,


36 Sure Start Nurseries
20 Youth Centres
5 Libraries
3 Sports Centres
6 Public Toilets
2 Swimming Pools
Free Parking
Free Advice

Cuts.

£40 million for Adult Care
£45 million Children’s Services
£12.6 Million Housing for Vulnerable People

2000 Jobs (17%) of Council jobs to go.


I somehow think that the 3,700 job losses in Birmingham and increases to council house rents and car parking along with restricted funds for care and the arts are not going to be all that we have to face ahead.
