AMONG the worst hit councils is East Dunbartonshire, with all departments being asked to prepare 15 per cent cuts. This would mean pound;8.8 million out of education as a whole and pound;6.6 million from school budgets.

North Lanarkshirefaces reductions of pound;3.2 million, Perth and Kinross almost pound;4 million, and Argyll and Bute pound;2 million. North Ayrshire projects a 10 per cent cut.

Glasgow and Edinburgh are among the few authorities reporting no pain.
