Bournemouth Echo: Setting off the alarm bells Setting off the alarm bells

THE use of outside consultants by councils supposedly led and staffed by large numbers of experts is inevitably controversial. Dorset County Council has spent hundreds of thousands seeking external advice, partly on how to save money. There appears to be quite a sizeable ‘if’ over whether this will be worth the investment.

That is what they are handsomely rewarded for, surely?
