Budget discussion at Area Forums tonight and tomorrow

Ann John, leader of Brent Council and Muhammed Butt, deputy leader and lead member for resources, will be speaking on the 2012-13 budget at Area Consultative Forums this evening and tomorrow. Their appearance takes place against the background of Labour's U-turn on cuts, the council's determination to 'consider all options' including privatisation, the Audit Commission's strictures on council reserves and the likely shrinking of the council to offer only the minimum of statutory public services.

The Wembley Forum is this evening at Patidar House, 22 London Road (off Wembley High Road) at 7pm and the Willesden Forum tomorrow at the College of North West London, Denzil Road, NW10

You can speak at the Forums on budgets, Willesden Green Library Redevelopment, Willesden Bookshop, street litter or any other relevant topic. Get there early and fill in a Soapbox Form or book on-line LINK You will get 3/5 minutes to speak early on the agenda.
