"CASH-strapped Bournemouth is spending a staggering £200,000 a year on a
transport manager who should cost just £50,000.
At a time when services are under threat and council staff are being made redundant, the council is paying four times more than necessary for transportation services manager James Duncan.
As a senior management post, this job carries a fixed salary of £50,603,
plus pension and National Insurance.
But Mr Duncan is employed through the agency Penna plc, which charged the council £206,014.65 for his services for the period January 29, 2008 to February 1, 2009. "
And this is a Tory Council?
