Plymouth has lost £1,500 per person

New figures from Plymouth City Council show that Plymouth has lost £1,500 for every man, woman and child thanks to cuts voted for by Plymouth's Tory MPs.

 

£109m has been cut from Plymouth's budget and that means fewer staff to help the most vulnerable in our city, less money for housing, less money for public health and housing and less money to help create jobs in Plymouth.

Since 2012 the Labour Council has been battling the Tory cuts. Last week the Government announced more money for Tory councils elsewhere in the country and even less money for Plymouth. It's so depressing to see our MPs being so weak in standing up for our city and so silent about highlighting the impact these cuts have on our city.

Plymouth deserves better.
