Pressures on funding for public services
 

Group Chief Executive's Weekly Message

"Be assured we are working closely with the Department for Regional Development to see how we can best manage the cuts to funding which we will inevitably have to face"
5th September 2014

 

Colleagues,

I am sure you will be aware of news reports surrounding the reductions in funding available for all public services. The health service and police have been the most high profile stories to date but the pressures on funding – which are large and very challenging – will affect us too. Be assured we are working closely with the Department for Regional Development to see how we can best manage the cuts to funding which we will inevitably have to face. This is the background to the recent decision by trade unions representing bus drivers to carry out a consultative ballot in relation to pay issues. We will of course keep you fully informed as the position becomes clearer.

Gordon Milligan

Interim Group Chief Executive
