Surestart cuts backfire on Tories

UNISONActive is hearing that plans for the Tory Party conference in Manchester are not all going according to plan. First choice for the conference creche was the same one they had last time they were in the city. Red faces all round then as the Sure Start scheme has closed. Another victim of the savage cuts (£110 million alone this year, another £70 million next year) imposed by the Tories.
