Another "Working Group"

Edinburgh's case for additional 'Capital City supplement funding' got a pretty luke-warm response this afternoon from the new Scottish Government.

To be fair, a 'working group' is to be set up to look at the issue ... but "no change yet" was the clear message.

This new 'working group' is to report for 2009, which to me (and I hope I'm wrong) means the earliest that any substantive change "could" happen is from the 2010/2011 financial year onwards.

Another missed opportunity to properly recognise the very real 'Capital City financial pressures' which are increasingly falling on Edinburgh.
