POLITICIANS have been called upon to pledge their support for a free advice charity.
The Citizens Advice Bureau has written to all of Portsmouth’s parliamentary candidates asking them to pledge their support for continued free advice.
Portsmouth CEO Lynne Davies said: ‘For 75 years, the Citizens Advice service here has provided free, confidential advice and influenced decision makers to make a lasting difference for our clients.
‘We need support from the public, and in turn from local and national government, for our work to continue. The future of free, independent, confidential and impartial advice in the UK is under threat as local authorities continue to battle budget deficits.’
