Wiltshire’s Liberal Democrats have called for an independent enquiry to be launched into the massive BBLP contract which is to be ended early by Wiltshire Council.
 
Wiltshire Lib Dem Leader Jon Hubbard said “We now know that this failed contract will be ended two years early, but we are not going to be told any additional information. I received a briefing paper from the council that told me that a deal had been done, but that the council had signed a confidentiality agreement that meant that no-one, not even senior opposition councillors, could be told the details of the agreement.
 
“I believe strongly that the taxpayers of Wiltshire deserve to know the truth about how much council tax money has been wasted on this contract, and we should be told the full story about how much public money has been used to buy our way out of this dysfunctional flawed contract that the council should never have signed.
 
“This contract was always too large, it included too much and have never delivered from day one. It is time that we were told the truth – we have heard enough spin.
 
“The only way that Wiltshire residents will have any confidence in what we are told now is for an independent enquiry to be held, with all of the facts being laid out openly and honestly on the table.”
 
The Liberal Democrat group are submitting a motion to the next council meeting later in September calling for an investigation to be put in place.
