Coalition Climbdown – Councils 'urged' to publish all spending over £500

Eric Pickles the Communities Secretary has disgracefully pulled back from compulsion to back up their wish that all expenditure of £500 plus should be made public. BBC Report.

What chance that Rotherham Borough will comply without the pressure of sanctions if they don’t?

Almost zero chance in my opinion! Eric Pickles must change his mind on this, as without compulsion the information will simply continue to be hidden from us and ‘business as usual’ will be the order of the day.
