Compare council expenditure

Have your say

I must congratulate you for your report in The Star on how much four of our local councils have spent on hospitality and catering in the last five years.

These figures seem a lot to a layman like myself but surely it would illustrate to the readers in a more understandable way if you had compared our local council’s expenditure with comparable cities like Manchester, Liverpool or Birmingham.

If you can produce a table in the next week or two, we could see whether these councils are overspending or are being quite frugal.
