Gordon Milligan, Chief HR and Corporate Services Officer said: "The Voluntary Exit Scheme we have launched today will cut management, overhead and administration costs by £3.1 million annually. This is the first area where we have sought to make savings and is in line with our priority to do all we can to protect front line public services. These are greater savings than the forecast of £2.1 million I announced on the 24th February, and reflect our ongoing determination to seek out the maximum efficiencies that we can in the management and supervisory areas.

"We are briefing staff internally and we are engaged in discussions with the Trade Unions."
