Stop the cuts in Bromley
To Cllr Stephen Carr, Leader London Borough of Bromley
We the undersigned are deeply concerned about Bromley Council's decision to make £33 million of cuts, that will affect many vulnerable people in the borough including services for the elderly and disabled, youth and children's centres, libraries, park rangers, school-crossing patrols, help with school uniforms, and loss of public toilets.
We therefore call on the councillors to reconfigure their budget decisions and use some of their £58.5 million reserves as recommended by the Local Government Minister, Andrew Stunell MP on 2 March 2011.
We also urge Tory and Lib Dem councillors to look at an alternative to the public expenditure cuts by putting pressure on the government to:
· curb bankers' bonuses
· tax the banks at a much higher rate
· crack down on tax evasion/avoidance by the banks and other big businesses
