Local MP Tim Farron has criticised the Department for Health for selling Cumbria short when it comes to spending on the county's public health.
In 2017/2018, Cumbria received just £38 per head in Public Health Allocations, compared to the national average of £59.
This is in huge contrast to local authorities in London who receive much more, with Westminster receiving £128 per head, while that figure is £135 in Kensington & Chelsea, and £187 per head in the City of London.
Tim said: "This is further proof if ever it was needed about how little this Government cares about us up here in Cumbria.
"Spending on public health is vital when it comes to things like preventing harm from misuse of drugs and alcohol.
"So not only are these figures grossly unfair, they're also very potentially damaging for the health of local people."
