Tories hand millions to wealthiest councils – but there’s only cuts for Sunderland.
Sharon Hodgson, MP for Washington and Sunderland West, has accused the Tory Government of a stitch-up after the Chancellor handed hundreds of millions of pounds to the wealthiest Tory councils to ease the pain of spending cuts – but offered nothing to Sunderland City Council.
Sharon joins in the celebrations at Washington Old Hall 4th of July, 2015.
