Evening Times: MSPs hit out over plan to close Glasgow day care centres

18 Jan 2013

Evening Times Political Correspondent Stewart Paterson reported today:
THE closure of day centres for adults with disabilities in Glasgow was debated by MSPs at Holyrood.

He said the closures were a cut to services and was concerned the consultation process has not sufficiently considered the views of users and their families.
Several city MSPs debated the issue with Labour MSPs stating that it was not a cut as any savings were to be spent on new social care services. They said if the council was given a fairer settlement from the Scottish Government it would have more cash to spend.
See the full report on the Evening Times website.

The transcript of the debate is on the Scottish Parliament website at
