Autumn Statement – Conservatives Fail to Deal With NHS Blackhole

Autumn Statement – Conservatives Fail To Deal With NHS Blackhole

This week’s autumn statement shows a Brexit blackhole at the centre of government finance. Parliament has heard that hundreds of billions will be taken out of the economy just when we need it most.

Liberal Democrats across our area and the country have been pushing the government to put their money where their mouth – with an immediate £4 billion cash injection to stop the impending winter NHS funding crisis. See our video here!

Commenting on the Autumn Statement, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:

“Figures forecast a rise in unemployment and a fall in living standards.

“We are seeing a drop in tax receipts of £8.2 billion over the next two years alone. That’s enough to fund over 330,000 nurses. In response the Chancellor offered nothing but reheated headlines and recycled announcements.

“He and his Government are not competent to deal with the challenges ahead. They are going to hit people in the pocket through their hapless handling of Brexit, and Labour can offer no opposition, having backed them on Brexit.

“Yet, the Liberal Democrats have consistently campaigned for more funding for the NHS as we are on the edge of another winter crisis and our health service is at breaking point but yet the government has turned a deaf ear to these calls.

“Sadly now patients will pay the price. There is also nothing for public sector workers, our doctors, teachers and armed forces, who deserve a proper pay rise.”

Network Rail announce line-side clearance in Dringhouses

Network Rail has announced in a letter to residents that it plans to undertake line-side clearance of vegetation in the Dringhouses area in preparation for the upgrading of the Transpennine railway. It has organised a drop-in session for residents on Tuesday 29 November at St Edward the Confessor Church Hall from 4pm to 7pm.

Representatives from Network Rail and contractor QTS will be present to answer questions. There will also be a presentation at 5pm and 6pm.

To enable electrification of the railway, Network Rail will be removing vegetation from 6.5 meters either side of the tracks (from big trees to small bushes) to allow safe clearance for the gantries and wires.

Network Rail will also be renewing fencing along the route. Dependant on the location they will be using either stock proof fencing or green palisade fencing. Before work starts, an ecological survey will be carried out. Any protected species or nesting birds are identified and appropriate methods of working are put into place.

Askham Bar clean-up

Cllr Stephen Fenton led a team of volunteers in a litter pick of the area around the old Askham Bar Park & Ride site on Sunday 20 November. As with previous litter picks, food and drink packaging from items bought at Tesco were strewn around the area.

24 bags of rubbish were collected

24 bags of rubbish were collected

The stretch of pavement and verge on Tadcaster Road between the cemetery and the new Park & Ride site was particularly bad, and yielded three full bags of litter.

There is a growing band of volunteer litter pickers who look after their street. If you would like to join them, please call Stephen on 787988 or email cllr.sfenton@york.gov.uk . All volunteers are provided with training and equipment.
