Councils say budget to be cut by quarter

    The Convention of Scottish Local Authorities has warned that the
    distribution mechanism for Supporting People money over the next
    three years will have a “devastating” impact on some
    councils.

    Spokesperson for social work and health improvement Eric Jackson
    said nine councils would be hit by cuts of over 25 per cent.

    He said: “As this announcement does not contain any allowance for
    inflation over the spending review period the real cuts for the
    worst affected councils will be significantly more than the
    executive’s estimates.”
