Conservative cuts cost Norfolk dear


The Conservative government has told local councils to plan for cuts of between a quarter and two fifths of their funding. Norfolk County Council is currently consulting on how to cope with these cuts but a Liberal Democrat campaigner says Conservative councillors have made the situation even worse.

Ed Maxfield, Lib Dem spokesman for the Mundesley area, says that Conservative councillors recently blocked moves that would have soften the impact of the cuts.

"An accounting change used by other councils would have allowed £10 million to cushion the blow. Now the money will have to be found elsewhere, probably from deeper cuts to important services."
