The Eye report that H&F Council commissioned a report from Deloitte following the controversy over some of its high profile consultancy contracts. It says that Deloitte found H&F Council “badly wanting in seven areas.” As a consequence it may have needlessly paid out millions of pounds of tax payers’ money to high paid consultants.
The report appears in issue 1296 currently available in all good newsagents.
