Motion text

That this House strongly regrets the fact that local authorities in the Liverpool City Region face a funding shortfall of £59m as a result of covid-19 pressures; notes that, although recent Government announcements have softened the impact of funding reductions which have been estimated at £440m, there will still be a major and wholly unacceptable impact on local government services which are already buckling following eleven years of austerity in public finances; strongly notes that such vital services as children’s and adult social care will be severely affected having a serious and unacceptable effect on some of the most vulnerable residents; and calls on the Government to fully recompense local councils for the cost of Covid-19.
