SNP councillors will pay for their own tea and coffee at today’s Scottish Borders Council budget briefing.

Jedburgh councillor Jim Brown made the request on “principle” as the local authority expects to make cuts of around £13million for 2011/12.

The price of a hot drink for the five SNP councillors who will attend has been set at £1.45 per cup.
