Press Release   •   Oct 21, 2010 12:33 BST

"Our commitment throughout this process was to ensure fairness was at the centre of all decisions on cuts and spending."

Commenting on the CSR, Liberal Democrat Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone said:

"Our commitment throughout this process was to ensure fairness was at the centre of all decisions on cuts and spending. For that reason, extensive efforts have been made to centre high-level reductions on administration and to protect frontline services.

“On the issue of policing for example, the Comprehensive Spending Review delivered a challenging but manageable settlement for the police and they will do everything they can to safeguard the quality of policing for the public."
