COUNCILLORS representing north Wiltshire residents are right to call for fairer funding for the people of this county.

Time and time again, public services are being cut and the very people who pay for those services are suffering the most.

Foodbank usage is on the rise, bus services are being reduced, parking fayres are increasing, and hospitals, emergency services and schools are under ever increasing pressure.

So why should people in Wiltshire be given such a raw deal in receiving about half the funding for these services that people in London do?

It seems that Wiltshire Council are doing well with the funding that they receive.

However they could do so much more for residents of this county if their funding was on par with other parts of the country.
