Yorkshire 'hardest hit by state cuts'

Government spending cuts were likely to cause more job losses in areas such as Yorkshire, raising the prospect that the region will miss out on the labour market recovery, the TUC has warned.

General Secretary Brendan Barber will visit the area as part of the union organisation's campaign to promote an alternative to the "deep and rapid" cuts. He said: "Yorkshire is one of the regions hardest hit by the Government's spending cuts, whatever Westminster politicians may claim."
