Video: Ross speaks at #SYP64
Ross Hutton, MSYP for Dundee East, speaks out against cuts to local authority funding during a motion debate at the 64th National Sitting of the Scottish Youth Parliament.
It’s such a way of life in my constituency. I go to outreach and I hear these young people say “it’s just a budget cut that’s happening”. This isn’t right. It’s not right and I see the Head Teachers are making these tough decisions, having to cut staff in their schools. They are making these impossible budget cuts, it’s not right and we are complaining about our education system and not putting enough money into so I completely agree with this motion and I urge you to agree with it too.
The sitting took place at the Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th October 2017.
