Alliance welcomes Special Council Meeting on External Audit

Alliance has welcomed the announcement from the Mayor's Office this morning, that a Special Council Meeting will be held later in July to discuss the findings of the Department For Communities' Audit into land sales in the Borough.

Chris McCaw, Alliance councillor for Causeway, said "I am very disappointed and shocked to read this report.  We have consistently supported this audit and believe we need to act urgently to implement all the recommendations made.

"The last independent report we had into officers' conduct was largely ignored, against the wishes of Alliance and others. We cannot do that this time.

The statement concluded "All councillors, from all parties and none, need to work together to restore the public's confidence in our Council. It should be no surprise that we are already one of the most unpopular councils with the people we represent. We owe it to them to deliver better."

Alliance MLAs will also be submitting questions to Ministers on the issue.
