Reaction to Scottish Budget16/12/15
Willie Sawers, depute convener of Dundee City Council’s policy and resources committee and spokesman on finance said: “We have already been planning and working towards making considerable savings in the council’s expenditure in anticipation of tough times ahead.
“Difficult decisions are being made and today’s budget has delivered local councils a really challenging settlement.
“This is a direct result of the austerity politics of the Westminster government.
“Clearly at this point it is too early to know exactly what implications the budget will have and our officers will be working hard to give us the detailed picture.
“What I can say at this point however is that our goal is to try to protect key services that the council delivers to the most vulnerable members of our community.”
