MAYOR of Doncaster Peter Davies has defended cuts made in his budget.

Mr Davies, who announced the closure of a children’s centre and 308 job cuts, said compared to other councils, Doncaster was making few cuts, adding another council was closing 19 children’s centres.

He said: “Despite this being the hardest budget I have had to make as we come to terms with the Government’s deficit reduction plans, I have pulled a robust budget together which protects crucial front line services and our most vulnerable residents. I am particularly proud that we have protected services for those with moderate care needs where other authorities have cut them.
