Stop the Cuts to Health and Social Care Demonstration

UNISON members were joined by members of Weston Labour party to demonstrate at tonight's North Somerset Council meeting. On the agenda were £10 million of cuts to council services including £2.5 million of cuts to Adult Social Care and almost £2 million to Children's Services.

The council also debated a motion expressing their concerns about the STP for the area - the motion was passed with the following amendments:

Item 3 of "This Council is concerned" was removed

Item 4 of "North Somerset Council asks the leader of the Council to" was removed

The full motion can be found at item 6 of http://apps.n-somerset.gov.uk/cairo/docs/doc27922.htm

Here are some photos from tonight's demonstration.
