Regular Wirral Leaks readers will know that our trans -pennine correspondent Charles Nunn is most definitely on the Stewart Halliday case ( even if our local public servants haven’t been -or more accurately- don’t want to be).
Charlie Boy tells us :
As you probably know Mark Warters submitted a F.of I. request to York to try and establish whether, or not there was a conversation between Robinson and their C.E.O. about Halliday`s contract extension.You may recall my request to Wirral told me that Robinson was “comfortable” with it.
I understand that former CYC employee Mr S. Halliday currently employed by Wirral Council has had his contract/placement recently extended to the end of the year there and a conversation took place between the Wirral Chief Executive and the CYC Chief Executive that led to Wirral Council concluding that “there is no impediment to Stewart Halliday’s continued appointment with Wirral Council”
I would like to submit a FOI act request for the following;
(i) Confirmation that the conversation (s) took place and if emails were exchanged copies of the correspondence.
(ii) Copies of all correspondence between CYC and Wirral Council in relation to Mr Halliday’s employment.
Thank you for your assistance.
Cllr. Mark Warters
As I suspected. Refused on the grounds of “confidentiality” although it may well have cost the Wirral Council Tax payers over £200,000 in total for taking on a shyster.How frequently we get that response from Councils.
