One Barnet - Judicial Review Gets Hearing

I was surprised and delighted to hear that one of the judicial reviews of the NSCSO contract had been given a hearing in March. This is excellent news, as it shows there may be a legal case against the entire programme.

There will be costs, and certainly a delay to implimentation even if the JV is unsuccessful. I hope it will show the procurement programme was flawed and that we should not go ahead with this multi million pound bonanza at our expense.

You wonder why the Council never planned for any form of success for a JV, which they surely knew was coming.
