Tories push through budget con

H&F council meets on Wednesday to debate the Tories' budget proposals for 2009-10 onwards.

The Tories are planning £32 million new budget cuts to 2012, making £61 million cuts in local services since 2007.

The budget cuts will pay for a small cut in council tax, which in turn will be offset by big rises in fees and charges, with almost 600 new or increased charges since 2007.

Residents are therefore paying more for less - the biggest budget con of them all.
