£7m consultant fee claim sparks upset

Millions of pounds of taxpayer’s cash is going on consultants employed by Bradford Council, it has been revealed, as another election row breaks out between politicians.

Bradford West MP George Galloway claimed £7 million was ending up in the pockets of “fat cat consultants” and said that any Respect councillors elected after people go to the polls on Thursday “would do all in their power to root out waste and corruption”.

In response, Bradford Council leader Ian Greenwood said that under Labour Bradford has “for the first time established and published online a clear picture of expenditure on consultants after years of Tory mismanagement of the Council’s finances.”

He said that Mr Galloway had nothing new to offer beyond what was already being done and said that if he had any evidence of corruption, as he has alleged, he should alert the police and the Council immediately.

“It is a very serious allegation to make,” said Coun Greenwood.

“If, as I suspect, he has no such evidence then he should stop his rhetoric and posturing although I know that he will find that very difficult to do.

“We’ll continue to keep the use of consultants under close scrutiny but the actual Council contribution to their use last year was £2.8m not £7m.

“The balance is made up by Government contributions towards things they require us to do in a short space of time and which often need specialist skills.”

Mr Galloway said he would move to scrap the use of consultants if his party enjoyed election success.

“We will do everything in our power to hold a bonfire of the consultants, rather than the present situation where the Council is burning money,” Mr Galloway said.

“It is completely unjustified and an insult to council tax payers struggling to pay their way that this obscene amount of cash ends up in the pockets of fat cat consultants.

“Council services are being slashed at a time when vast sums are being paid out to these companies. This money needs to be invested in the city, for the benefit of the city, rather than boosting the balance sheets of private companies.”

The Council’s Conservative group leader, Councillor Glen Miller, said he agreed too much was being spent, while Liberal Democrat Councillor Jeanette Sunderland said she wanted to know where Mr Galloway got the £7m figure from. Coun MIller said: “The use of consultants is an easy way of getting answers. I think it is a big expense for the taxpayer to be spending extra money on consultants if you see little return for the money spent.”

Coun Sunderland said: “It is good if they want to stop the use of consultants. I would like to see the evidence, but the principle is that we should always challenge unnecessary spending.”

Mr Galloway’s spokesman said his figures came from the Council and showed more than £2 million was spent by its culture and regeneration departments alone.

  • On Thursday two Bradford Council-run leisure centres will be closed temporarily to be used as venues for counting votes in the local elections.

The Leisure Centre, Keighley, will be shut from 3pm and Richard Dunn Sports Centre in Odsal, will be closed from 5pm. Both will re-open as normal from 9am on Friday.

perhaps they ought to employ a group of consultants to work out the true cost of employing consultants.

Indeed so and the charity "War on Want" went bust under the reign of a well know Respect member.

How do those employed by the Council who get more than the Prime Minister justify their wages when they hire consultants. I thought they paid high because they were good and know how to run things, seems they not.

More electioneering nonsense going on then! How does Galloway know they were 'fat cats'? Has he looked into every use?
The term 'consultant' is a bit of a wide ranging description. Usually these people are paid to provide expertise that the council's staff can't provide. Would the people complaining about this rather have the council employing people who aren't fully occupied on the off chance that their skills are required? I suspect that would cost considerably more than £7m.

What we would rather have are coucil employees who know how to do the job they are paid for .
If the employees had a clue how the real world of business worked instead of sitting on their behinds waiting for an expensive consultant to tell them how to do the job they are paid for ,we would all be much better off.
It is the same iold story of council employees without a clue or real experience sitting around waiting for that big fat early retirement pension and lump sum.

I think the main point here is that the Council is still spending far too much money on consultants. Whether it is £7m or £2m it is still a heck of a lot of money that could be spent more wisely on other things.

Local authorities are supposed to employ qualified experts to staff their services - planning officers, civil engineers, environmental health officers, social workers, teachers - all of which have to have a degree and be registered with a professional body in order to work. Surely they will have the expertise needed to carry out research and develop projects for the Council? Most private businesses will look internally first for this sort of thing.

Depends what you mean by "consultant". Many private sector companies employ freelance staff, these can be described as "consultants".

I guess I'm meaning for roles in which the person carrying out the research / writing the report / producing the bid already has a background that is relevant to the work needed. I'm sure most businesses will look at who they've already got on the payroll before outsourcing work.

A lot of businesses and charities these days will identify what skills and competences their staff have to see if they are giving them work that is appropriate to their abilities or underutilising them. To my knowledge Bradford Council has never done any such exercise and it is something that HR could easily keep up-to-date as people join and leave.

It looks like Galloway's policy of headline grabbing misinformation is working.
He uses the word 'consultant' and everybody assumes that they're all driving around in BMWs and making a fortune.
This stereotyping is just as bad as the myth that all council workers are lazy.
Don't know what the Council's wage bill is but I suspect £7m is a drop in the ocean. And the unions grip on the council mean that it's unlikely that these outsourced roles have directly replaced a council employee.
