“Three Quarters Of Tory Councillors Worried About Cuts To Children’s Centres, Poll Reveals”

Owl says: Yet it is their party and their votes that have caused this situation.

“Nearly three quarters of Conservative councillors are worried about government funding cuts to children’s centres, a new poll has revealed.

The research, which saw 508 Tory local government representatives quizzed by charity Action for Children, showed 72% believe long-term funding for children’s services is a major concern for their council.

More than half say budget restrictions are making it harder for councils to meet their responsibilities towards children and young people, while 38% believe there is a “lack of clear direction and funding” from government.”
