Council owned companies to allow same level of public scrutiny as council

Kazek Lokuciewski started this petition to Wokingham Borough Council

These companies are being given control over vast sums of public money.

Early this year the Government made the council publish all expenditure over £500 to reduce the ease with which public representative could abuse the public purse.

Wokingham Borough Council believes that channelling contracts though companies they own should eliminate this safety net. Theoretically making it easy for a few to abuse the public purse.

It is not appropriate for there to be secrecy in the value, break down of costs and ongoing obligations with local contracts involving public money, whether it is with the council or the council company they give exclusive control of public funds to.

These companies must treat publicworks contracts as if they were direct in regards to the right to public scrutiny.
