Campaign kicks off on the BBC

Our campaign against councils wasting money on agency workers and consultants kicked off today with a 11 minute piece on the East Midlands Politics Show. There is a 4 minute filmed piece giving details of what our research has uncovered followed by a 7 minute studio debate, with Ravi Subramanian, UNISON's regional head of local government, with the deputy leader of Wellingborough Council and Cllr John Boyce, the leader of Oadby and Wigston Council.

If you want to see the show, click on the East Midlands Politics Show and then watch the latest episode on the iPlayer. You'll have to be quick though as the show on the iPlayer will be replaced next Sunday. You will need to slide the controller to 31 mins and 10 secs to catch the start of the piece.

Did Ravi make our case that councils can be saving money on agency workers and consultants; or did the politicians persuade you it was all a good use of taxpayers' money?
