Labour calls in independent auditors to investigate Maghull Town


Labour-controlled Maghull Town Council has invited independent auditors in to look into the formal tendering and commissioning process behind the Maghull Town Hall roof refurbishment project.

 
Since taking control of the town council the Labour Group has been conducting a detailed review of the council's finances and expenditure - including the refurbishment of Maghull Town Hall roof.
 
The Labour councillors have now handed their findings to the independent auditors and requested they conduct a full investigation into the work which was commissioned by the previous Liberal Democrat administration ahead of last May's local elections when Labour took control.
 
Cllr Caroline Esterson who has looked into the town hall roof project said the independent auditors had been called in to get to the bottom of some outstanding questions.
 
Cllr Esterson said: "My Labour colleagues and I have conducted an in depth review of the town hall roof project. We have handed over our findings to the independent auditors.
 
"As there are still a number of outstanding questions in relation to the commissioning of this project before Labour took control of Maghull Town Council, we have invited in the independent auditors so we can once and for all get all the answers that we need in relation to this very expensive scheme."
