bus cutsHertfordshire Liberal Democrats have condemned the latest ‘consultation’ by the Conservatives into slashing subsidised bus services in Hertfordshire.

“They got the wrong answer first time round when local residents roundly rejected the proposals so they are trying to batter us into submission,” said Cllr Sandy Walkington.

“Which part of “NO” do the Conservatives not understand?  Liberal Democrats have already shown that all the required initial savings have been made.  There is a breathing space for a proper review of all services with the operators and no need for this vindictive slash and burn approach.”

This whole consultation is not wanted, it’s unnecessary and what will it achieve if they simply ignored the last one?” added Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst.
