Labour Secures City Budget

warrenmorgan_1__1_.jpgCouncillor Warren Morgan, Leader of the Labour and Co-operative Group, said:

I’m pleased for residents that enough Greens ultimately saw sense and voted with Labour to set a Budget. Alongside our amendment to secure funding for children’s centres, voluntary sector organisations, domestic violence refuges, public toilets and more, we are pleased with the result that delivers the kind of outcomes residents have told us they want.

We are disappointed that the Conservatives would not negotiate to back our efforts to freeze parking charges.

I condemn the Militant Greens and the Conservative Group for pushing us to the brink of handing control of our local services to Government-appointed commissioners, who would have inflicted cuts even deeper and faster than already imposed by this Conservative government.

Once again common sense has prevailed and for the second year in a row, Labour has set the Budget. If elected in May we can get to work rebuilding a council that works for all residents and every neighbourhood across the city.
