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).

Nice to see you! I'm sure that in present days colleges don't spend many efforts in teaching their learners how to write their essays. I have been in the studying profession for many years of my tough life where my main focus was on enhancing the writing skills of students. Now many of my favorite pupils are providing professional writing help online at this agency (you can see all the info by clicking here) to other pupils who find it so difficult to write their not so simple articles.
