Andrew Gwynne comments on the government’s Towns Fund Facebook adverts

Andrew Gwynne MP, Labour’s Shadow Communities and Local Government Secretary, commenting on the government’s Towns Fund Facebook adverts, said:

“Our towns are struggling because of a decade of austerity – including vicious cuts to council funding, which means cuts to social care, children’s services and homelessness prevention.

“This proposed money is a drop in the ocean compared to the billions the Conservatives have cut from local communities.

“It’s time for real change and a Labour government that will give councils the funding and resources they require.”
