Lib Dems fight for walk to school safety
Hampshire County Council’s ruling Conservatives have forced through plans to wipe out funding for EVERY school crossing patrol in the country from 2019.
Liberal Democrats at the County have demanded a rethink.
Axeing crossing patrols will put children at risk on our busy roads and force more parents to use their cars to take children to school, creating more congestion.
Hampshire Conservatives have said that the way to fund crossing patrols is for schools to spend less money on education to fund the patrols, or that Parish Councils should put up Council Tax to fund them. If neither of these solutions work, patrols would be ended.
Your Lib Dems are determined to find a way out of the County’s financial incompetence - and put our children first!
