§ 26. Mr. LONGDEN
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the cuts in social services already agreed upon, as well as others contemplated, by the Birmingham City Council; and whether he can state the amounts involved in the different departments?
My right hon. Friend is informed that no cuts have been agreed upon at present by the Birmingham City Council, that a general review of expenditure—both actual and contemplated —is under consideration by the Standing Committees of the Corporation, and that this does not necessarily imply that any recommendations will be made involving cuts in social services in Birmingham.
