Campaigns roundup

A 50-strong meeting in Camden, north London, last week slammed the Labour-controlled council's plans to demolish an old people's home. People at the meeting were furious to hear that the pay of some directors of council departments is to rise from �79,000 to �83,000.


HEALTH CHIEFS in Huddersfield got a rough ride at an angry public consultation meeting last week. The local health authority is planning to cut all children's and women's in-patient services at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary as well as ear, nose and throat treatment, oral surgery and ophthalmology. It wants to replace the services with PFI-funded schemes in nearby Halifax. Campaigners have already collected 50,000 signatures on petitions and have held one noisy demonstration.
