Anti-cuts debates planned.

TWO sets of campaigners have forced debates at next week's monthly meeting of Kirklees Council.

Anyone who collects more than 3,000 signatures to a petition can trigger a town hall debate.

The 69 councillors will discuss the Cabinet decision to reduce the number of teachers of deaf children from a full-time equivalent of 10.3 posts to 6.5.

Campaigners say the cut will mean 200 children will be left without help at school.

Councillors will also debate the Cabinet's decision to slash funding to Worklink, the service which helps vulnerable and disabled people find work.

The debates will take place at the monthly meeting at Huddersfield Town Hall from 5pm on Wednesday.
