Two open meetings: Cuts in public spending are on the way – Have your say on what stays and what go
Cuts in public spending are on the way. We know the NI Assembly has to find £1.2 billion in public spending cuts. There will be tough decisions to be made and the Consumer Council wants you to get involved.
Now is the time to make your voice heard and help shape how these cuts are managed by government. Have your say at one or both of our open meetings on how these cuts may affect you, your family and friends. The Consumer Council will bring your views to the NI Executive Ministers and fight hard for what you believe must stay, what goes and how public services can be improved in the future.
