Fairer funding to Wales for local council services

Fairer funding to Wales for local council services

After seven years of austerity, we the undersigned residents and people working in Flintshire call on the Chancellor of the Exchequer to end the failed policy of austerity and provide fairer funding to Wales and enable our local council services to be properly funded to meet the increasing needs of our communities.

Why is this important?

Local council's need fairer funding to deliver services to residents - without further funding services may be at risk.

Reasons for signing

  • Austerity is a failed Tory policy that is hurting local communities. At the same time the wealthy are taking even bigger slices of the pie for themselves.
  • Local authorities, like Flintshire, cannot be expected to deliver the level of service the public deserve and expect with year-on-year cuts from government. It is high time that austerity measures are ended - not only are they unfair but they also increase inequalities in our communities
  • Austerity approaches are totally counterproductive, and result in needless human distress and misery.
