Hilary Benn MP, Labour's Shadow Communities and Local Government Secretary, responding to research on cuts to council services, said:
"People across England will within days start to see the full impact of David Cameron's severe cuts on local government and councils.

This research shows just how seriously the impact will be on children's services, care for the elderly and our civic infrastructure - the libraries, parks and sports facilities that millions depend on and enjoy. What makes it worse is that the biggest cuts are being imposed on the most deprived communities."
