A change in policy or a lie?

According the budget cuts efficiency savings that the Council has put forward, there will be a reduction in school crossing patrols in the Borough from 58 to 49, which, in percentage terms, represents a 15% cut.

However, in response to a question from the Conservative Group leader Cllr Drury, the Cabinet member for Environment and Community Safety, Clr Maureeen O'Mara stated that there will be "no changes to the existing provision of school crossing patrols."

So what does this mean exactly? Well, either Cllr O'Mara has announced a change in policy, or she's lying. Readers may remember Cllr O'Mara, as she was the Cabinet member who failed to declare a financial interest in a planning application and still kept her job.
