Job Cuts In The Civil Service

EDM number 907 in 2003-04, proposed by John McDonnell on 24/03/2004.

That this House welcomes the Chancellor's renewed commitment to public services in the Budget, but is extremely concerned at the announcement of the cut of over 40,000 civil servants' jobs; notes that civil servants provide key services to the public in every constituency in the country, from paying pensions and helping people find work to preventing drug smuggling and inspecting schools; believes that any significant reduction in the essential backroom office staff will critically undermine the frontline services they support; and therefore urges the Chancellor seriously to reconsider these cuts.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
