Council spends another £278,000 on lap top computers
In July 2008, Barnet Council spent £1.4 million buying 1,400 near obsolete lap top computers, 100 of which are still in storage.
Cabinet Member for Resources, Lynne Hillan, has just authorised the purchase of another 300 tablet PCs at a cost of £277,937 - over £925 each. In her report, Cllr Hillan describes the purchase as “excellent value for money”. A quick visit to PC World would reveal that this purchase represents anything but good value.
Lynne Hillan wants to slash the warden service to save money but then pisses cash away like this.
If this is a sign of things to come under a Hillan leadership, then frankly we are doomed.
