Greens' U-turn averts row over future of Bristol's adult leisure learning service
Bristol’s Green Party are withdrawing an amendment from tomorrow’s council budget meeting which averts a row over the future of Bristol’s adult leisure learning service.
The Greens wanted to divert the money from the service to help the homeless in the city.
But they have withdrawn after learning that the Liberal Democrats are putting forward an amendment which would save the Prevention of Homeless Fund for one year.
Councillor Tess Green said: “We believe that prevention of homelessness should be a priority as homelessness causes immense distress.

“A further factor is that homelessness would increase as a result of a cut to the prevention fund.
“However we do appreciate the benefits of Adult Leisure Learning. A last minute LibDem amendment provides funds for Homelessness Prevention for one year only, but this does give time for a long term solution to be found."
