Wales Finance Minister Jane Hutt Warns Of Tough Times

Recommended Posts


Wales is facing "very serious times" as it prepares for spending cuts which will hit public services, Finance Minister Jane Hutt has warned.

Ms Hutt is starting a tour of the country to seek the views of people who use and provide public services.

Ms Hutt said the assembly government had been preparing for a "very tough" budget settlement from the UK Government.

Jeff Randall on Sky News tonight did an item about Merthyr where a third of all people living there are on some form of benefit.

Wales has been shafted for 500 years but basically when the industry was closed down in the 80s a large part of the workforce was put onto benefits and never came off.

If you have a third of people on benefits in a town and you then start cutting public sector jobs then the place is never ever going to recover.
