Spineless Councillors Uphold ADeC Cutbacks

Councillors yesterday agreed to uphold the decision made by the Members of the Community Services Committee at East Cambridgeshire District Council, to reduce the funding grant received by ADeC.

Members of the Internal Overview and Scrutiny Committee heard arguments both for and against the original decision from Councillors and members of the public before voting to uphold the resolution that was made in October.

The move to make a reduction of £70,000 in the ADeC grant for the financial year 2008/9 will now form part of the Community Services Committee budget to be debated in December 2007.
