Meeting with Jeremy Hunt on Tuesday

Wokingham and West Berkshire Councils have a problem with the money allocated for social care next year. A change of government requirements and a change in the funding system has left both short of cash.
I had a meeting with the Secretary of State with my Parliamentary colleague from Newbury to put the case for the Councils, stressing that the problem had been foreseen during the passage of the new legislation and it had appeared Ministers were going to sort out the issue for West Berks and Wokingham.

Mr Hunt has promised to study our case and come to an early decision given the time pressures to agree next year’s budgets.
