New year, same old Tories

Normal service is resumed after the Christmas break when the Tory Cabinet meets on 7 January to close local schools, cut services and spending in Hammersmith & Fulham.

The Tories are pushing through new cuts, closing local facilities, reducing housing options, and raising fees and charges for local services to pay for a small council tax reduction. They claim that this will save residents money but many local people are now faced with higher fees and having to pay for services that have been axed.

£34 million cuts in local services are the high price local residents are paying for a Tory council.
