Jonathan Djanogly backs calls for fairer funding for rural councils


11th February 2013

Speaking during a debate on fairer funding for rural councils, Jonathan Djanogly raises his concerns that rural local authorities will not get their fair share of central Government funding until after the next general election.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con): The point is that we want fairness. We know that the pot had to be reduced, but we were promised that whatever the pot was, it would be more fairly handed out. Not only is that not happening, but it has now been put off until after the next general election.

Neil Parish: My hon. Friend makes a good point. Back in 2004 we saw funding drift away from rural authorities towards urban authorities and we thought that now there would be a rebalancing, but that is not happening and, as he says, we will have to wait until almost 2020 before that is put right.
