Glasgow Labour fighting back against SNP cuts

Frank McAveety

'In the next few weeks the SNP Government are set to announce their budget for the next year.  If the last few years are anything to go by, this could be another tough settlement for Glasgow City Council.'

'Despite the massive cuts that Glasgow’s faced over the last 9 years under the SNP at Holyrood, we’ve been continuing to invest in our city.  Whether that’s investing to secure jobs for young people, investing to protect our older citizens or investing to give school pupils the best start to their education, Labour has been investing in the city of Glasgow.'

'Yesterday Kezia Dugdale and I went out to visit the site of the new £21m Gowanbank Primary School in Nitshill, the latest in a long line of investments in our school estate.  The new school is part of Labour’s 4Rs programme, a £250m investment in primary schools across the city to make sure every school pupil can learn in the best environment possible.'

'Local councils are at the forefront of driving forward investment across our country but it’s only possible if we get the resources we need from the SNP Government at Holyrood.'

'So, at the budget the SNP need to cough up, give Glasgow our fair share and make sure we can continue to deliver for the people of this city.'
