EVEN MORE TORY CUTS TO DEVON SCHOOLS BUDGETS!

"They said it had to be done to balance the books. You might remember that local schools had their budgets cut by £33 per child by the Conservatives at Devon County Council" reports Devon Lib Dem County Councillor Alan Connett.

"Well, today at County Hall those same Tory councillors will be voting to put £20 MILLION, yes £20 million, of savings into the council's reserves at the bank and so the savings increase from £51 million to £71 million!"

These completely unnecessary cuts to schools will affect every child in Devon. The Lib Dems say this cut wasn't necessary and could be avoided.

Why on earth do the Devon Tories need to do this especially as Central Devon Conservative MP Mel Stride promised extra funding for Devon Schools at the Moretonhampstead Election Hustings in May?
