Scotland’s largest city will finalise its budget on Thursday, against the backdrop of looming cuts.

Fears had been raised that teacher numbers could be cut to save money, but a Scottish Government intervention means any cash pulled from funding teachers will be clawed back by ministers.

Plans leaked last month suggested up to 800 places could be at risk, but council leader Susan Aitken rejected the idea, saying Labour had “deliberately distorted” options that had been put to councillors.

“We’re not cutting teacher numbers at all,” she said.
