There will be deep anger from Civil Servants about PM’s letter on cuts

31 May 2022

Prospect have responded to a letter sent to all Civil Servants by the Prime Minister on cuts to public services.

Mike Clancy, General Secretary said:

“Civil Servants went above and beyond to pull the country through the Covid pandemic and Brexit, some of the biggest challenges this country has seen in peace time.

“There will be deep anger among our members that the Prime Minister seems to be giving them a slap on the back, while saying one-in-five of their jobs will go. And, beyond worrying about their jobs staff also face a cost of living crisis which this Prime Minister has done nothing but deepen.

“These massive cuts to public services will do immeasurable damage to the public services we all rely on.

“It is time for the government to step back and drop these reckless plans.”
