COSLA has provided a further submission setting out its views on the unrealistic nature of the revenue saving of £186m on central support costs which, the secretary of state has indicated, will be included within the 1996/97 settlement.

COSLA accepts that there is scope for savings in central support services but not to the extent of £96m in a full year and £86m next year.

Existing employees have the right to transfer to the new councils and it will take some time for the new councils to manage down numbers to reflect their staffing requirements after 1 April 1996, says the association.
