David Cameron: 'Share More Services With Devon'

David Cameron says Cornwall should share more services with Devon and Somerset to save money.

The council has ruled out merging the Duchy's fire services with the other two counties.

But the Prime Minister has told the Westcountry Tonight that County Hall can not expect austerity to end soon: "We do fund Somerset and Devon and Cornwall appropriately. We think there's more they can do to share services but we'll keep all the promises we've made, for instance, about flooding expenditure."

Speaking on the eve of his speech at the Conservative Party Conference Mr Cameron insisted: "We have to level with the country that we still have a big defecit. We've cut it by a third. It'll be by a half next year - but this is still a real problem.

"As a result I think it's only honest and fair to lay out some of the decisions, some of the spending cuts, you're going to have to make."

The warning comes as officials begin a series of public meetings about how to save almost £200m pounds in the Duchy.

It is expected to mean hundreds of council jobs go, as well as an impact on frontline services.

The first meeting is in Launceston on Wednesday night with Wadebridge, Callington and Torpoint following.
