Cuts in secret?

Birmingham councillors are elected as councillors for all of the city, although they obviously represent particular wards. They take decisions affecting the whole of the city, yet councillors are being denied access to full information.

Labour councillors, curious to understand the level of cuts imposed by the Conservative/Liberal Democrat administration, have asked to see the same level of detail that they get for their own constituency committees for others, where there is no Labour representation. This has been denied.

This can only be for political reasons and you have to ask - what are they trying to hide?
