Kevan Jones never rebelled against their party in this parliament
Because of their unitary status, those councils have been able to save money. The fact of the matter is that the budget has been cut by 40%. The reason for the reserves is that the next round of rationalisation will involve redundancies, which have to be paid for. The idea that there is a magic pot of money lying in County Hall in Durham to pay for future services is complete nonsense.
Will the Minister give way?
The Minister has to recognise the fact that he is part of a Government who have reduced the budget of Durham County Council by 40%. The council has to make redundancies. How will it pay for them without those reserves?
