Making sense of the cuts

Following the Comprehensive Spending Review, the Local Government Channel looks at what it all means for councils and the likely impact of the 28% cuts on local services. We join LGA Chairman Baroness Eaton, Communities Minister Baroness Hanham, LG Improvement and Development MD Rob Whiteman, the MJ's Heather Jameson and other key figures in local government at a special LG Group CSR conference to get their reaction to the huge changes and the challenges ahead for local authorities.
