Scottish Liberal Democrats are urging local authorities not to make cuts to front-line services until a new government has conducted a review of council funding, the Glasgow Herald reports (p6).

SLD leader Jim Wallace is writing to shadow Scottish secretary George Robertson, urging him to tell councils not to make significant cuts until October.

'Labour should promise that, if in government, they would improve the local authority funding settlement for Scottish councils before the 1997-98 cuts to essential services are allowed to take effect', he said.
