The annoucement today of a massive round of redundancies totalling £4m per year in salary costs at Wiltshire Council has been blasted by Lib Dem leader Jon Hubbard.

"Not once was this mentioned by the Conservatives during the election period, " Jon commented. "Yet today we have an annoucement hidden away at the back of next week's cabinet agenda annoucing the loss of at least  340 full time positions from within the council.

"The cabinet paper gives no indication of which services will be hit by the job cuts, nor any indication of what due dilligance and risk assessments have been undertaken to ensure that essential front line services will be protected.

"What we see here is yet another example of the worst kind of decision making. And what really stinks is that this decision must have been made before the elections, and the people of Wiltshire were not told the truth about the Tory economic plans for the county."
