Cuts to Wokingham Borough Council jobs

July 26, 2010 12:00 PM

At the Executive meeting on Thursday, Cllr Prue Bray, the leader of Wokingham Liberal Democrats, will be asking a question about the proposed Council job cuts. She will be asking how many Council employed staff will be made redundant and which Council services will be affected the most.

Cllr Bray said: 'It is very important that the Council chiefs are completely up front about who will be affected by the job cuts, because the services offered to local residents will be impacted directly. The Conservatives have repeatedly said that their priority is the vulnerable people in the Borough. The Liberal Democrats will be monitoring closely what happens next - any cuts to services must not affect those offered to vulnerable people.'

Cllr Bray's question to the Executive is reproduced in full below:

'One of the ways in which the Council is saving money (as laid out on page 46 of the agenda) is through staffing reductions. In the press release addressing this item, issued on 22nd July, the Chief Executive is quoted as saying that you anticipate reducing the workforce by 100 posts. How many of these 100 posts are occupied by members of staff who will lose their jobs, and in which services of the Council will they be going from?'
