  • Government must urgently invest in young people – 56 MPs and councillors

    Labour’s Shadow Communities Secretary has joined a group of 56 MPs and councillors representing areas that have faced some of the deepest cuts to local government funding in the country who are calling on the Government to urgently invest in young people.

    Andrew Gwynne MP joined councillors and MPs to present a letter at Downing Street at 11am on Wednesday 19th June calling for urgent action to address the £3.1 billion funding gap in children’s services. The letter also calls for the Government to reverse planned changes to the funding formula for local government that will see deprivation downgraded or removed as a measure.
