The DSG report had been considered and discussed as part of the overall budget presentation and discussion.
There was further discussion on the previous management of the issue which had led to the DSG deficit rising in recent years. The Director of Finance summarised the detailed work and action that had been undertaken in the past year which had successfully reduced this years deficit and started to stabilise the position. It was noted that the DSG issue was not confined to Slough but it was a matter the Council needed to continue to address.
Resolved – That the report be noted.
