PLP Chairman calls OBAs figures on consultants fairytale
Governments claim that the Progressive Labour Party administration in 2010/11 spent upwards of $100 million a year on consultants has been contested by the Opposition as fairytale numbers.
PLP Chairman Maynard Dill said Premier Craig Cannonier and One Bermuda Alliance Chairman Thad Hollis had been quoting a fabrication.
According to the Ministry of Finances website, said Mr Dill, the correct figure for that year is $50.7 million.
Expenditure on professional services fell to $33 million in the subsequent year, he added, suggesting that the OBA hoped to justify giving out lucrative consulting contracts.
Citing new Opposition Leader Marc Bean, Mr Dill said that PLP will not object just to object.
But he said Government shouldnt use unfounded and spurious information that would polarise the Country.
