Cash-strapped councils asked to prepare for no deal


Welwyn Hatfield PPC, Barbara Gibson, speaks at conference

Responding to the letter received by local Councils this week from the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government calling for local authorities to prepare for a no deal Brexit, Liberal Democrat County Councillor and Parliamentary Candidate for Welwyn Hatfield Barbara Gibson said:
 
Asking cash-strapped councils to prepare for a no deal when it is in the Government’s gift to rule it out is nothing short of an insult to local services.

"With local government being eroded at every opportunity and councils struggling to even run just the most basic services, to add this burden for no reason other than to scaremonger support for the Prime Minister’s already defeated deal is utterly shameful."
