Julie spoke in a debate in Westminster Hall on Local Government funding in the North East.

This Government is hitting northern Labour councils hardest, whilst protecting southern Tory ones. This means further cuts to vital public services like adult social care in the North East.

Due to central government cuts, Sunderland City Council has had to make savings and reductions in total of £207m since 2010/11 and is projected to be required to make further reductions totalling £115m by 2020. Yet councils like Surrey have received additional transitional funding of £24.1m from the Government.
