Council leaders protested yesterday that metropolitan councils in the West Midlands face having nearly £60m cut from their budgets next year, The Birmingham Post reports (p1).

Birmingham city council may have to axe £34m from its £878m budget, while Wolverhampton may lose £12m from its £204m budget, because the government is redrawing its rules on council spending using the results of the 1991 census.

Birmingham city leaders called for an urgent meeting with environment secretary John Gummer to appeal against the cuts.
