War of words over budget proposals to cut posts
HULL: Opposition Liberal Democrats have accused the city council's ruling Labour group of breaking most of their promises made before regaining control at the Guildhall two years ago.
The Lib Dems claim Labour's budget plans for the coming year will mean up to 600 job losses, cuts to frontline services and council tax increases for at least the next three years.
Lib Dem deputy leader Councillor Mike Ross said: "I am genuinely shocked that the Labour councillors who stood on a platform of protecting jobs and frontline services are about to viciously cut both.
"This budget is proof that Labour have failed to keep just about every promise they made before they came into power.

"I think it is right that some of the Labour councillors have started to challenge the old Labour bosses."
The budget proposals will go before a scrutiny committee next week ahead of a full council meeting on Thursday, February 28.
Senior Labour councillors say some of the redundancies relate to savings previously earmarked but never implemen- ted by the Lib Dems.
