    Lib Dems force huge changes to Tory budget

    After a decade in charge at Shire Hall, the Tories presented their 12th budget. It contained large cuts which hit vulnerable people and failed to make investment in vital services and infrastructure.

    The Liberal Democrats presented a series of amendments to the Budget totalling £6 million. After a long break in the meeting, Shire Hall's Tory bosses backtracked and incorporated this new money into the budget.

    The new funding has been found by the Lib Dems without the need to increase Council Tax any further than already proposed by the Conservatives.

    Since 2015, over £4million has been cut from Gloucestershire County Council's budgets for adults with learning disabilities.

    In 2015/2016 this budget was cut by £2.1million and in 2016/2017 by £1.8million. Another cut is being proposed for 2017/2018.

    The county's Liberal Democrats have now attacked the Conservative controlled Council for hitting the most vulnerable in Gloucestershire.
