The Olympic Games in London 2012 will not be projected from budget cuts says new culture secretary Jeremy Hunt
New Culture secretary, Jeremy Hunt, has said that the Olympics 2012 will not be protected from Budget cuts. Speaking to Newsnight for the BBC, Hunt said that no part of the Department for Media, Culture and Sport's budget is safe. Mr Hunt said that, if required, cuts would be spread evenly across all departments.
This comes on the back of the first Cabinet Meeting in which the new Prime Minister spoke of the hard and determined work needed to ensure a safe economical recovery and to reduce the current deficit. There have been growing concerns from the Labour Party that Public Spending would be slashed and jobs would be lost, so far there has not been any evidence of this but Hunt's comments and the impending Budget surely shows signs of spending cuts on the way.
