LA impunity over Looked After Children remains a festering sore. Impunity must be legislated against by Parliament and replaced with strict accountability. All FOI’s must be dealt with properly and actually address the issues raised. Impunity is undemocratic – an utter waste of taxpayers money!!
Last month we sent a Freedom Of Information request asking for a breakdown of costs awarded to families who had suffered due to council failings. The response is unexciting. That’s not because there is no information available, though.
Our only option now is to contact councils directly. Will they share this information with us?
