Derbyshire Conservatives today blasted the Labour controlling Group on the way they have handled the cuts and manipulated the figures to portray a Council on its knees when the truth is far from it.  Today the Conservative Group pointed out that in 2009-10 the county council received grants of £480m, whilst for the upcoming financial year it will receive £495m, some £15m more than it received in 2009/10.  Overall the councils spending power was reduced by £1m or approximately 0.2% on the year before, or £500m as compared to £501m last year.
