Labour fight for Essex’s fair share of the £2 billion Adult Social Care

LABOUR to fight for Essex’s fair share of the £2 billion Adult Social Care announced in last week’s budget.

Following last week’s Spring Budget in which the Chancellor, Philip Hammond announced an additional £2 billion for Adult Social Care, Councillor Ivan Henderson, Leader of the Labour Group, Essex County Council has written to Councillor David Finch, Conservative Leader of Essex County Council seeking immediate confirmation that any funding received by Essex County Council as a result of this decision will be used entirely to reduce the necessity of cuts to Adult Social Care service in Essex.

In its most recent budget, the Conservative administration of Essex County Council plans to cut £55 million from Adult Social Care provision. The Labour Group fiercely opposed this cut which it believes will have a devastating impact in the most vulnerable people living in Essex.

Labour County Councillor Karen Clempner said today; “It’s essential that Essex gets its fair share of the £2 billion announced last week. The Labour Group will fight to get this commitment for the people of Essex.”

Funny how they weren't so keen to fight for Social and Mental Health Care at the General Election when UKIP pledged more money to them both!
