Fairer funding for Leicestershire

For too long, Leicestershire hasn't received a fair share of funding compared to other parts of the Country.

The funding formula no longer demonstrates a clear and strong enough link to need, and the costs incurred in actually providing services.

Through working closely with Leicestershire County Council and fellow County MPs, we have been making the case strongly to both No.10 and The Treasury.

I was pleased to hear the Chancellor confirm a fairer funding review would be undertaken soon. I look forward to contributing towards the review to ensure we get a fairer share in Leicestershire.
