Ques­tions still need an­swers – coun­cil­lors

Macclesfield Express - - JONES RESIGNATION -

COUN­CIL­LORS say they still want to see an ex­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the Core Fit row de­spite Coun­cil­lor Jones’s res­ig­na­tion.

Labour coun­cil­lors have tabled two mo­tions to be heard at the full coun­cil tomorrow (Thurs­day) re­lat­ing to three con­tracts worth up to £156,000 is­sued to Core Fit, run by Michael Jones’s phys­io­ther­a­pist Amanda Mor­ris out­side of the coun­cil’s nor­mal ten­der­ing rules.

Mo­tions on the agenda for the full coun­cil meet­ing call for an ex­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion into al­le­ga­tions that Core Fit was given ‘favourable treat­ment’ and for an in­ter­nal au­dit re­port on the mat­ter to be de­bated at full Coun­cil.

Coun Janet Jackson, Labour coun­cil­lor for Mac­cles­field Cen­tral, said: “Michael Jones has done the right thing re­sign­ing, but I don’t see how he can say it’s noth­ing to do with Core Fit.

“We are call­ing for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the whole is­sue.

“This is not over.”
