Where the axe might fall on councils...

The Chancellor announced £1.165billion worth of cuts to local government funding today, but none of that will come from the main formula grant they get.

Here is a list of other grants councils get that may now face the chop.

Those marked with an 'R' against them are ring-fenced. But as we found out this morning the Government will “de-ring fence” grants worth some £1.7billion nationally.

So it is from some of the R-marked schemes that cuts may well be made (though not from Sure Start, schools or 16 to 19 education cash).
