Leicestershire Liberal Democrats have attacked the Conservative government for taking the people of Leicestershire for granted.
It comes as the Conservative County Council budget was passed today, which included a 2.99% Council Tax rise. This means a Leicestershire Band D Council Taxpayer will have to pay over £42 more Council Tax to the County Council.
Leicestershire County Council has given it's unanimous backing to a campaign by Cancer Research UK to increase funding for public health prevention services.
A motion proposed by leader of Leicestershire Lib Dems Councillor Michael Mullaney calling for support for the campaign got support from all parties. Michael Mullaney said "Almost every family in Leicestershire will have been affected by cancer. Each year around 4,000 people in the county develop cancer and sadly around 2,000 die from it.
