Cuts Watch #36: Most deprived areas face largest local authority grant cuts

07 Jun 2010, by in Cuts Watch

John Denham MP has highlighted that by retaining the general grant received by local authorities, and cutting additional area grants by £1.165 billion, local areas with higher levels of deprivation (who are more likely to be in reciept of additional funds) will be hardest hit.

The South Yorkshire Star report that:

“Unprotected grants include money to tackle entrenched unemployment and youth crime, additional support for two-year-olds, support for mental health care in schools, one-to-one tuition, early years funding, extended school hours and breakfast clubs, as well as funding to stamp out anti-social behaviour.”
