Lutfur Rahman is not honest about his planned cuts, say Tower Hamlets Labour councillors

Responding to Lutfur Rahman's budget consultation, Cllr Rachael Saunders, leader of the Labour Group, today said:

"Lutfur Rahman claims to be opposed to cuts to frontline services, but his published proposals include cuts to children’s services, social care and mental health provision – the support local families rely on.

"He hasn’t even told us how much he wants to cut those services by – there are no figures at all in the documents.

"We know that we face tough times in the east end. Lutfur Rahman has a responsibility to be honest about what he plans to do about it."
