Scottish Borders Council says it will close seven rural primary schools if it is forced to carry through a cuts package, reports The Scotsman (p1).

Other measures the council says it will be forced to take are: 200 job cuts, cutting its road resurfacing programme by half, and further cuts in home care services.

The council has been asked to slice£8m, or 8 per cent, off its budget.
