Mouchel – Outsourcing debacle
Reference: Mouchel – Outsourcing debacle – Suspension of Stephen Parker – Email leading to his suspension.
I am formally and politely asking as a member of the public – and because this debacle is now fully in the public domain for a copy of the e-mail that Mr Parker sent to all Councillors which led to his suspension. [See 1 Echo front page - Friday 14th October 2011]
The Local Echo have printed limited extracts of the e-mail in question [See 2 Echo page 10– Tuesday 18th October 2011] – but have had the benefit of seeing the “lengthy e-mail”; while the public who are ultimately the funders from where all monies come from have been “kept in the dark”.
Therefore in the public interest – I require full disclosure of the e-mail in question.
In the alternative of a refusal to disclose – I put it that certain individuals must therefore have something to hide – not only in respect of the e-mail but in respect of possible fraud and or criminality / wrongdoing / abuse of office – and bullying etc originating from the original contract to outsource 4 departments, recently increased to 6.
Furthermore – I require the name of the QC who has allegedly been brought in to cast his eye over this unfolding debacle and I do wonder who ends up funding his fee?
