Westminster Hall Debate – Local Government Funding

On Tuesday in a Westminster Hall Debate, I raised the fact that funding from central government for children’s services has been cut by 10.9% according to the latest report by the NAO into Sustainable Funding of Local Government. The Chancellor failed to address this in his Budget or in the recent Spring Statement. By 2022 there will be a £2.2bn short-fall nationwide for children’s services.

This Government should be doing more to protect vulnerable children across the country.
