Where will the Tory axe fall in Crewe and Nantwich?

"It's time for local Tories to come clean and tell us where David Cameron's cuts will be made in Crewe and Nantwich", said David Williams, Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Crewe and Nantwich.

David Williams continued, "The Tories have finally admitted just how much they want to cut from our public services. I was shocked when I heard their health spokesman Andrew Lansley stating that the Tories would make 10 per cent spending cuts in the vast majority of government departments.

"Mr Lansley seems to have gone to ground so I think it is now up to local Tories to tell us how these swingeing cuts will affect the people of Crewe and Nantwich.

"But I won't be holding my breath. When David Cameron promised real-terms cuts from this April I asked for an explanation, but none was forthcoming.

"Labour has invested in our public services and the results can be seen all around the area. New and improved schools across Cheshire. Better facilities at Leighton and new health centres in Rope, Nantwich and Crewe. New neighbourhood policing teams in every area, bringing down crime.

"All this investment and more is under threat if the Tories get into Government. The Tories should tell us now which services they will cut in Crewe and Nantwich."
