SIR – Do Bradford Council think that by laying low they will not have to answer legitimate questions about their workings?

I ask this after Andrew Bailey, the respected head of the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority, criticised the Council for not divulging the true reason for Paul Flowers having left his role as a local councillor (T&A, December 23), saying that “I think there is a moral duty. If I was in that situation it would have been on my conscience.”

As I stated in the T&A some time ago, surely the Council had a duty of care to its citizens and others, and had failed in that duty by lying about the departure of Councillor Flowers.

Why has no-one been brought to book in this matter? Once again the buck never stops anywhere within Bradford Council whenever anything goes wrong or is poorly handled.

This really is not good enough nor acceptable, and reflects badly on Council leader David Green and chief executive Tony Reeves.
