Belt tightening means less school support in Finestrat

FINESTRAT has tightened is cutting costs by slashing various social grants.

Parents will now receive €40 to help towards the costs of school materials instead of 100 per cent of the cost being paid as it was previously. School children will no longer get free school meals. There will still be a grant of €100 for families with children up to age three.

These welfare cuts by the governing Popular Party (PP) sparked criticism from the Socialist Party (PSOE), according to Spanish newspaper Las Provincias. While the opposition agrees that spending cuts are needed, they believe these cuts should come from “advertising cost, products and protocols which would save €350,000 per year, rather than taking away aid from families struggling due to the economic crisis”.
