Public sector job cuts8th December 2009
The Reform think tank has called for significant job cuts within the public sector in order to decrease the public deficit.
The group said one million jobs (15% of the workforce) should be cut, with most losses coming from the NHS and the police force. This would result in a saving of £27 billion a year. Reform director Andrew Haldenby said: "Politicians have to be more honest with the public about what needs to happen if they are to reduce the deficit. Radical change won't happen if they see their role as the defenders of the status quo."
