‘Disappointment’ over secrecy

SOUTH Holland District Council leader Gary Porter has expressed his “disappointment” at the press and public being excluded from discussions.

As the council’s Cabinet went into closed session on Tuesday, Coun Porter said he was “not convinced” the agenda items should not be heard in the open.

Councillors were due to discuss Supporting People contracts and funding, a tender to continue using an existing supplier for the construction services unit and a review of legal services.
