Paul Carter, Midlands and North County Hall Leader and Chairman of South East England Councils is apprehensive over the reduction in the spending budgets of many that would cast an adverse effect on the disadvantaged areas of the region.
Carter warns the Government not to keep considering Kent as a flourishing county, which could be threatened with budget contractions.
"We need to combat the false perception that the South East is universally wealthy and make sure Government knows cuts here would harm the prospects of a huge number of people", said Carter.
One of the districts of the stated county, Thanet is the most vulnerable to any spending cuts followed by towns such as Gillingham and Sheerness, as per a research published by the BBC.
Carter added that in 20% of the deprived areas in the South East of the county, around 500,000 people dwell, which is equal to one-fifth of the whole population of North East of England
But, South East is the area which pools in more to the Treasury funds, which in 2007 was about £18 billion. Thus, it is one of those counties, which gives more; however gets less. The area has witnessed the second largest cut in the public sector jobs.
