Asked if the Prime Minister thought it was fair that central government cuts in funding to areas such as Manchester resulted in the loss of double the amount of jobs expected, the PMS said that the specific decision the journalist referred to was a matter for that particular council. This all went back to what we had to do to deal with the deficit. In order to deal with the deficit we had to make some difficult decisions, and we thought there was a lot of scope for all parts of government, including local government, to make greater efficiencies and protect frontline services.
