Today, Jack called on the Government to review their planned changes to Local Government funding, as Birmingham is set to lose out yet again under Tory plans.

Birmingham City Council has already seen £700 million worth of cuts since 2010, and these proposals will further slash the budget the City Council has to provide essential services such as Social Care by £48 million.

Jack Dromey said:

“It is wrong that new Local Government funding plans by this Tory Government will divert hundreds of millions in social care funding from deprived Labour Councils towards leafy Tory shires.

Birmingham City Council has already faced £700 million worth of cuts, the biggest cuts in local government history, and the current plans would see another £48 million cut from their budget. This will directly impact the ability of the Council to provide vital adult social care provision for the residents of Birmingham.

Labour are opposing these unfair changes and are calling for this review to be scrapped and replaced by a fairer system. Birmingham deserves better.”
