Council Puts Cuts on Hold

The city council in the Manchester suburb of Salford is delaying its plans to cut services for deaf children. The Salford Council intended to cut the number of teachers. Now, these proposed changes will be considered by a committee of parents and interested officials. The proposal had drawn protests from the National Deaf Children's Society and more than 4000 locals who had signed a petition opposing the cuts.
