Finance Committee tomorrow ... main agenda here and individual papers can be found via CPOL here.
There's a classic statement contained within report number 22, on the use of external consultants - paragraph 11 simply says:
"The report details consultancy costs in 2009/10. There are no financial implications arising directly from this report."
... yet two paragraphs above there's confirmation that over £5million was spent in 2009/10 on revenue and capital consultancy contracts?
Age of austerity??
