Edinburgh Council’s Labour/Tory/Lib Dem coalition leader, Cammy Day, says:
“Councils have been cash-strapped for many years. We are cutting services to the bone if we make any more cuts here in Edinburgh.
“We are calling on the Scottish government, who we know have hundreds of millions of pounds in reserves, to dig deep.
“If ever there was a rainy day that rainy day is now.”https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-62531938
