Conservatives plan jobs and services axe in Cornwall

Conrwall Council's Conservative led administration is planning to slash at least 1500 council jobs and the services they provide, Deputy Leader Jim Currie has admitted.

But a think tank believes that the cuts will be more like 3500 jobs.

The full story is on the BBC website and the interview was on Radio Cornwall this morning.

Whilst I believe that there are back office functions that can be cut within the council, to lose 3500 staff (or even 1500 if Mr Currie is right) will mean swingeing cuts to front line services.

My question to the Conservatives therefore is: Will they publish the list of cuts they are planning to make to frontline services.
