Sure Start, Safe with Conservatives

Last April just before the elections, I (and many other Conservative Councillors) were being asked whether Sure Start was safe if we were elected, of course we said.

But why were people asking?   Well that’s simple.    Labour used smear and fear tactics, distributing letters such as this one saying that Sure Start wasn’t safe.  You’ll see the person behind the letter (in the small print on the left)  is one of the Labour Councillor’s for Leasowe.

So, what’s happened?  Labour-led Liverpool is looking to close four Sure Start centres.  Conservative-led Wirral is not, and at tonight’s budget Cabinet meeting  Wirral’s Cabinet enhanced the Sure Start service with a huge £732,000 investment for the next 12 months.       More on Wirral’s budget tomorrow
