Cuts Watch #237: 1,500 jobs in Somerset

10 Sep 2010, by in Cuts Watch

1,500 local authority jobs are being cut in Somerset in response to Government cuts. Council leader Ken Maddock has said that compulsory redundancies will be inevitable. In addition to the job losses, the vast majority of planned building projects will be stopped, two thirds of the 60 county-owned farms are likely to be sold, a library is to close temporarily and six others face a cut in hours.
