Mr Mustard is still trying to get answers from Barnet Council under the Audit Commission Act which allows as follows:
If you wish to inspect the council's accounts, which are to be audited and any books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts relating to them, arrangements will be made for you to view them within the council's premises.
We are of course dealing with the year to 31 March 13.
Mr Mustard is struggling to get answers.
He has asked to see the contracts for bailiffs for parking tickets. He is told "legal say no" but no further explanation is yet forthcoming. The Rt Hon Eric Pickles MP has been informed.
He has asked to see the actual KPI for NSL's parking enforcement contract. The holy grail will turn up before those are issued. Do they exist?
He has been told there was no bailiff income at Barnet Council, in respect of PCN, between 1 April 12 and 31 March 2013.
If this is true then it is an utter disgrace that Barnet Council failed to properly collect parking ticket revenue that was properly owing. However, Mr Mustard does not think it is true.
Please settle the question by sending Mr Mustard proof that you paid a bailiff for a parking ticket from Barnet Council between 1 April 12 and 31 March 13. Send proof of payment to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
