Welsh Councils must use £2.75bn reservices before cutting services
Commenting on the news that councils across Wales face bankruptcy if they do not receive more funding or make drastic cuts to some of their most important services, Welsh Conservative Leader, Andrew RT Davies MS said:
“It is a very real concern that councils in Wales are struggling to deliver essential services.
“As we know, the funding of our Councils in Wales is the responsibility of the Labour Government. Before councils talk of cuts to essential services, they must first use the £2.75bn they have available in usable reserves.
“The Labour Government has received the largest funding settlement from the UK Government in the history of devolution, before Labour blame Westminster for their own financial mismanagement, they must look at the decisions they have made over the past 25 years that has made Wales worse off.”
