The MU are hugely concerned by proposals from Midlothian Council detailing plans to drastically cut the Instrumental Music Service. This comes as part of the councils efforts to close a £14.481 million funding gap.
Whilst we have not yet received the impact statement, we understand that the proposals outline plans to reduce the instrumental music service by 60%, and implement a service operated only by the funding received from the Scottish Government.

We urge any MU members who have been affected to contact the regional office by emailing glasgow@TheMU.org.
