Danny warns on 'fiscal nimbyism'

Danny warns on 'fiscal nimbyism'
Danny Alexander has warned ministers against "fiscal nimbysim", as he searches for a further £10bn in spending cuts across government.

Speaking to the Financial Times ahead of negotiations on the next spending round, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury said: "Just because you take a strong position in favour of deficit reduction does not mean that you can then protect your own spending."

He also downplayed the possibility of making further cuts to the welfare budget in the next spending review, arguing the decisions on welfare had already been made.

Meanwhile, the general secretary of UCATT has urged the Government to tackle the growing use of false self-employment in the construction sector.

Writing for Central Lobby, Steve Murphy urges the Chancellor to investigate the “sophisticated” industry, which costs the HMRC close to £2bn a year in lost revenue.
