Councillor Gordon Munro speaks out on the denial of COVID-19 emergency funding to Scottish Councils
This money is needed now. Holding on to this money and expecting Councils to use reserves reveals Holyrood’s contempt for Councils.
These funds are for Councils to use for their citizens in this crisis not for hoarding.
I call on Ben Macpherson to use his position as Minister to put the case for Edinburgh and its sister councils to receive this money in full now. Gordon Munro, Councillor for Leith Ward, Edinburgh City Council
