It is £444 million of Tory government cuts between 2010 and 2020 to Liverpool City Council’s budget that are savaging our vital local services.

The Conservatives are promising more of the same.

Some councils, like Conservative-run Northamptonshire, are now effectively bankrupt. Labour in Liverpool has done its very best to balance the books and protect the city’s most vital services.

Liverpool City Council is fighting every day to protect our children’s centres, libraries, social care and vital public health services.

In Liverpool, despite 68 per cent cuts to the city’s grant from government, Labour councillors have protected Sure Start Children’s Centres, kept all our libraries open and invest £12 million a year in tackling and preventing homelessness.

Returning a Labour councillor on Thursday May 3 is vital to send a clear signal that we want our services protected.
