Quotes

Mr Betts added: "there is political responsibility and officer led responsibility for this. the leader of the council has taken political responsibility for this by resigning as soon as the report was published but we have not seen officer responsibility. and i find it astounding that there have been no disciplinary proceedings against any officers as result of the failings identified."
Sheffield South East MP Clive Betts said: "it’s not very often these days you get to see new public sector developments so it’s great to see new facilities going up, particularly recognising they are going to provide an excellent service for my constituents."
