Baroness Eaton questions front loaded cuts

The Local Government Channel discusses the Localism Bill and cuts with Local Government Association Chairman, Baroness Eaton.

Following recent announcements of job and frontline service cuts from a raft of councils, the LGA leader slams front loading of those cuts in the first year and argues tough choices are ahead for councils and their residents.
