The York Council has finally published the controversial report into payments to contractors over the last few years.
The publication was ordered by Councillors last week although Labour representatives made a last ditch attempt to keep the document secret.
The Council have now issued the following statement
“It can be read and downloaded by clicking here
“A copy continues to be available for inspection at our West Offices.
“We’re sorry there has been a delay in making the report available.
“We had to seek legal guidance from the office of the Information Commissioner because the report contains personal information.
“We take our duties under the Data Protection Act seriously, but, at the same time, we wish to be an open, honest and transparent council”
Some of the report has been redacted but it does provide a greater insight into how broken management systems at the authority were in 2014.
