Calderdale Council

Cuts Today Will Destroy Tomorrow

We face the worst attack on public services and public sector employment for 90 years, mounted by the Coalition Government. These are the biggest cuts since those made by the Liberal – Tory coalition in the early 1920s.

The axe will fall first on workers employed by local authorities. The cuts will not actually reduce the deficit. Because spending reductions will hurt the economy and create unemployment, the tax received by the Government will actually decline as companies pay less tax on falling profits and people out of work stop paying income tax and VAT. This actually means the deficit is likely to get worse.

Calderdale Council is being forced into a position where they have to decide where the cuts will fall. Is Whitehall going to look after the vulnerable of Calderdale?

This is a time for all of us who care about the future to work together, and we need your support to protect the future for our children, our elderly, our disabled and our vulnerable.
