Recent cuts in in government funding have seen Dudley Council lose £76 million since 2010 and this will rise to £92 million by 2019/20.

These cutbacks have almost halved the money available for education, roads in the borough, social care, youth clubs, libraries, nurseries and other services.

Ian Austin said:

“It isn’t possible to lose that amount of funding without an impact on local people.

“The truth is that cuts in government funding have seen Dudley Council lose over £70 million since 2010, almost halving the money available for local roads, housing, care and other services.

“That’s why I am urging the Government to ensure that Dudley council gets the funding it urgently needs and deserves.”
