Welsh leaders plead for services funding

  • Comment

Council leaders in Wales have called on the Assembly government to ensure that funding is made available to protect front-line services.

During an all-Wales discussion on the Assembly government’s budget Welsh Local Government Association leader Derek Vaughan (Lab) said: “The growth of Welsh public expenditure is set to be the lowest since the establishment of the Welsh Assembly government. In these circumstances, what matters most to the people ofWalesis the protection of their local services from schools, care services for older people, waste management services to improving the quality of social housing and ensuring that affordable housing is available.”

Cllr Vaughan said that the WLGA was seeking an urgent meeting with the Welsh Assembly government in advance of the publication of the Budget to “make a strong case for adequate funding for local government to meet the needs of local communities”.
