Liz fails to overturn cuts to lunch clubs

Today was the day of the 12 million pounds cuts package at Glenurquart Road today and Liz made a plea for the cut in the lunch clubs to be spared the axe. She also questioned the accuracy of the information backing this decision and was not satisfied that she had yet seen all the details concerning lunch clubs.

Her motion was defeated by 50 to 23. It can't be fun being a councillor these days when, as part of the administration you have to actually vote for this kind of thing. The voluntary organisations and Gaelic also seemed to be taking a disproportionate hit from the process. More about this meeting later.
