Spending query

Have your say

I READ with great interest the leader in The Gazette dated March 17, “Needy, not Greedy” and in particular the penultimate paragraph “Council spent £530,000 in a single month on consultants.”

I understood that County Hall had all the expertise in house, and consequently, I would like to know what this money was spent on and what kind of consultant was necessary.
