Halton budget; standing up for the vulnerable in our community

As part of this year’s budget settlement, Halton council have made cuts to the social care budget of £220,000. We believe that savings in other areas (like Councillor’s allowances) should have been made instead.

We need to ensure that despite the tough economic times we face, we do not punish the elderly, disabled, and the vulnerable in the search for savings. I am proud that my Conservative Party colleagues on Halton Council are standing up for the most vulnerable in our community.
