Abstract

Local government in England is responsible for many preventative actions, from youth work to encouraging households to reduce levels of waste. A high priority for prevention would imply maintained funding levels, or at least a decline no worse than overall. However, analysis suggests that preventative spend by English local authorities declined from 32.4% of spend in 2010/11 to 30.6% in 2011/ 12: a proportional fall of 5.5%. Similar effects have been observed in other European countries. This suggests that short-termism is taking precedence as budget cuts hit.
