Lib Dems raise serious concerns about
Conservative cuts to Council budgets

County Council Services will be hit:

Simon Galton said: "This budget and financial strategy for the next 4 years will reduce spending on services in Leicestershire by a further £78m. It is a direct consequence of decisions and choices made by the Conservative Government.

Council tax payers will be paying more and getting less because income is not keeping up with demand for services.
