SHOCKING DOCUMENT REVEALS SALFORD COUNCIL ATTITUDE TO FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUESTS
Star date: 14th February 2018
SO MUCH FOR SALFORD MAYOR’S PLEDGE TO ‘CREATE A MORE TRANSPARENT ORGANISATION’
A document of response logs to a Salford Star Freedom of Information request to Salford City Council – probably emailed inadvertently – reveals the shocking attitude of the Council towards transparency, breaking City Mayor Paul Dennett’s own pledges.
Salford Council held the information requested but, despite its own Freedom of Information team being concerned about ‘transparency’, the so-called neutral Council Solicitor and Monitoring Officer, Miranda Carruthers-Watt, sent a response withholding the details anyway.
I say again if you don’t read the star and live in Salford you should buy blinkers,this is the only media source currant holding the council to account.
