Communities Set for Another Round of Government Cuts

Communities Set for Another Round of Government Cuts

Councillors, Trades Unionists and community activists from across Central Scotland gathered outside the Scottish Parliament recently to campaign for a fair local government budget settlement.

The call comes as the Scottish Government outlined a package of funding cuts, which will have a significant impact on front-line services within communities.

Speaking after the protest, Mark said:

"The proposed cuts to council budgets for the forthcoming year is £327 million. This will have a devastating impact on jobs and vital front-line services.

"Derek Mackay’s budget will be a hammer-blow to our communities and it will hit the vulnerable hardest. I will not vote for a budget that cuts our public services and does not ask the richest few to pay their fare share. I will continue to advocate for a fair deal for our communities and actively fight these savage cuts."
