You can watch Helen's response to George Osborne's Spending Review and Autumn Statement here. You can read Helen's response on Hansard here.

"Table 2.1 in the spending review shows a 56% cut in grant to local authorities, which the Chancellor expects them to make up from business rates and higher council tax. As my right hon.

Will the Chancellor provide regional analysis that shows what his assumptions are and takes account of the differential spend on infrastructure in different parts of the country?"
