Near Seven Million for Three Months on Consultants?!
Graham Smith of the BBC has blogged about a staggering amount of money that has been spent by Cornwall Council on consultants in January, February and March. It is a eye watering £6,873,635. It is broken down by the following: January £1,774,978, February £1,858,619 and in March £3,240,038.
You have to ask yourself why these payments were made and who received these payments. What justification is there, and more importantly, where are the improvements that have come to about by hiring these consultants.
These question need to be answered, and I have written to the Head of Finance asking for answers to these and other questions.
