P-04-591 Fair Funding for Local Government

UNISON Neath Port Talbot Branch call for the Welsh Government to reconsider the proposed budget cuts of up to -4.5% to Local Government funding. Local Government budgets are at breaking point and any further cuts will have a devastating effect on local services which the most vulnerable of society rely upon.Cuts to local government services will put further pressure on an already over-loaded NHS. These cuts are short sighted and the funds that are being diverted from local government to the NHS will not have the desired effect.Local government social services has a positive effect on keeping people out of hospital and maintaining these services is imperative in order to ease pressures on the NHS.
