"Jackson's Department Can't Even Direct The Traffic Around Town Adequately"
Consultants: TTS defend £1.2m cost
Transport Minister Mike Jackson
TRANSPORT Minister Mike Jackson has defended his department’s high spending on consultants, saying it would cost much more to permanently employ a set of engineering experts.
Figures released by the Treasury department show that TTS spent £1.32 million on 82 consultants’ reports in the last five years – making them the second highest-spending department, narrowly behind Health.
But the figure is a much higher proportion of their total spending as they have an annual budget of only £28m, the fourth-lowest of the ten States departments.
