Cheshire West and Chester Council paid £8m in fees to consultants

A TOTAL of £8m was spent on consultants by the cash-strapped Cheshire West and Chester Council last year.

The council had originally refused to answer a Freedom of Information request about consultancy fees, saying it would cost too much to compile the data, but was forced backtrack after The Chester Chronicle, the sister paper of the Pioneer, won on appeal.

My comment: If their staff need consultants to do their job they should sack the staff and recruit those who are capable of doing the job without recourse to consultants.
