Council: Call on Portfolio Holder to Resign

31 July 2008


Councillor Griffiths has submitted the following:

Council notes that this authority has received a damning verdict on its management of the housing maintenance contract, and that the complete absence of financial control has wrecked the budget and left many tenants without much needed improvements.

In light of this, council therefore believes that the portfolio holder in charge of this service at the relevant time should

  • acknowledge his complete failure to provide leadership or to facilitate an on-going review of the contract which would have highlighted the problems;
  • acknowledge the resultant mismanagement of and overspend on this service, caused by his inaction; and
  • accept that his failings in this matter are so great that he should resign from the cabinet immediately.

On being put to the vote, the motion was lost.
