I missed this off my u-turn list yesterday …
Today’s u-turn needs top be the one that seems to have more than decimated the number of school crossing patrol. The Telegraph reports that: One in four local authorities intends to cut the number of lollipop men and ladies they employ, with some councils intending to make every single one redundant.
I know this is not directly in Government hands but the petty cost cuttings being brought about by Councils is a result of governmental action.
The amount of money saved nationally is insignificant especially when children’s safety is concerned … but I can see that the policy sits right in line with local people taking responsibility for local things. Wonder if the next step is for ‘volunteer’ crossing wardens and what the insurance implications of that are?
