[100 word news] – ‘When you cut local authority budgets by 40%, we all pay a price in public safety’, says Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn has said that the Grenfell Tower tragedy was a consequence of the ‘disastrous effects of austerity’.

‘When you cut local authority budgets by 40%, we all pay a price in public safety. Fewer inspectors, fewer planning inspectors – we all pay a price. This disaster must be a wake-up call’.

‘You can’t have safety and security on the cheap. It is plain to see that seven years of cuts to our emergency services has made us less safe. It’s time to make a change’.

‘Our emergency service workers make us proud at the worst of times for our country, and deserve the pay rise they have been denied for seven years’.
