TORIES on the London Assembly are putting forward proposals today for a 10 per cent cut in their group budget.
They are proposing an amendment to Boris Johnson’s 2010-11 City Hall budget being debated today.
The Group’s Leader and budget spokesman Roger Evans said before the debate: “We are proposing this reduction in recognition that all organisations need to tighten their belts in straightened times.
“I hope that all political groups on the Assembly vote in favour of cutting their budgets and ease the burden on the taxpayer.”
