Councillor Davod Harrison

Valentine Budget Speech (video)

I always think that speeches delivered from the heart, without preparing, are often the most effective.

I wasn’t planning to speak at the Budget setting item at Hampshire County Council but, as the debate took place, I felt moved to do so.

As a “backbench” Councillor you only get 4 minutes to say what you are going to.

I felt really annoyed when the Conservatives started boasting about delivering low Council tax, whilst bumping up reserves to an all time high (over £640 million) and then trying to justify cuts they have made to all sorts of services from Police Community Support Officers, bus subsidies, Children’s Sure Start Centres, Youth Services and even Adult Social Care.

If austerity is to come to a stop, it needs to be halted locally and one of the wealthiest County Council’s in the country is a good place as any to make a stand.
