2010-11 Budget

'Budget packs' were published today for the City Council's 2010/11 budget ... pretty weighty documents, and it will take a bit of time for myself and colleagues in the Labour Group to digest the detail.

Numerous previous posts have dealt with the wider picture - most lately this post, and the links therein ...

... but as the main Opposition Group, our primary concern for 2010/11 is going to be pretty clear: to put up the strongest defence possible of front-line public services. Many of these services in Edinburgh have already suffered over the last few years, and I certainly do not feel they should bear the brunt of any further financial-savings required. Quite the opposite.
