Today I visited Pendle Leisure Trust’s Easter holiday activities initiative for youngsters. It has been funded by the Government's Health Inequalities fund and is helping to provide fair chances for all and it was great to see the Labour Councillors supporting this work. Some of the children told me that if they weren't there they would be at home bored. It is a great help for parents - particularly those who are working as well as looking after their families.
What Cameron and Osborne are not brave enough to tell people across Lancashire is that they want to make £5 billion of cuts that would see one in five Children’s Centres close and fewer police on the streets. Cameron's policy also means disgraceful cuts in leisure, training and apprenticeships, housing, transport and regeneration in the North West.
