Message for Wirral Council: "Put your own house in order"

WITH reference to your disclosure on Wirral Council's expenditure on hospitality (Globe, January 23).

Council tax payers will be livid about this extravagance.

The Portrait House is not an inexpensive restaurant, the Royal Liverpool Golf Club is the most expensive club in Wirral, so their food will be likewise.

Let cost-cutting start here.

Recently, the planning department rejected an application to refurbish five council offices and kitchen in Wallasey Town Hall, due to incorrect procedure in the application.

How much would this have cost, had it gone ahead?

This council needs to put its own house in order, before job losses and drastic cuts in services to the public.

P Evans, Wallasey

By way of clarification, the expenditure at the Portrait House was not for the restaurant itself, but for its outside catering services, providing food at Mayoral/Civic functions at Birkenhead or Wallasey town halls. You can view all the details on the original FOI request, on one occasion the cost was as little as £4 per head.
