  • 19:14 Story (9 links): Government 'slapdash' on 'non-jobs'

    Story View links

    Coalition revelations on the number of council ‘non-jobs’ has been slammed by the Local Government Association, who have told PoliticsHome the Government has manipulated its figures.

    "These distorted figures fail to acknowledge that the three million employed in local government includes teachers, police forces, and all of their civilian staff. The actual number employed by town halls is less than half that, at 1.4 million,” a spokesman said.

    "This slapdash analysis fails to acknowledge the huge savings that these members of staff bring to the work of their councils, ensuring that hardworking people get value for the taxes they pay."

    Around 180,000 more people are employed by local authorities now than there were in 1997 after an "explosion" in "crazy non-jobs", the Government has claimed.

    Local Government Minister Bob Neill said: “These figures reveal the explosion in town hall jobs and bureaucracy under Labour and reinforce the need for some councils to start cutting out middle management."
