Plymouth City Council - Picking the pockets of its customers

We're waiting for Greg Jacques to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman,

The decision, re Plymouth City Council (17 012 756) states at paragraph 15 that the Ombudsman 'will not start an investigation because a dispute over £25 does not represent enough injustice to warrant an investigation'

https://www.lgo.org.uk/decisions/benefit...

If a public body acts in a way which amounts to no less than picking the pockets of its customers and the Ombudsman who is paid by the taxpayer to oversee fair play chooses not to, then the injustice amounts to state sponsored theft.

How can a person who does not see this be considered suitable to adjudicate on such matters?

Yours faithfully,

Greg Jacques

FOI Officer, The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman
