Lib Dems join Somerset Sight in calling for Council to reconsider cuts


Leader of the Opposition on Somerset County Council Jane Lock is calling for the Tory administration to change their minds on the devastating £300000 cut to public transport.

Jane said "the most harmful part of that decision means that carers can no longer travel along with those they support without paying, the only authority in the South West to do so. For those who are visually impaired it is particularly harsh, in a rural county like ours we should be making life easier for people with disabilities not tougher. The Government gave Somerset an extra £2.9 million to be spent on services, instead it has been stuffed into reserves."
