The Highest Standards of Integrity

The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman did not have the information requested.

Dear Local Government Ombudsmen,

The advert for Redmond's replacement states "This high profile role demands...the highest standards of integrity..."

1. Did this apply whilst Redmond was in the role?
2. Who will select Redmond's replacement?
3. How will those people judge that Redmond's replacement has "the highest standards of integrity..."?
4. How will it be made sure that, once in post, Redmond's replacement adheres to "the highest standards of integrity..."
5. Why does it appear that there was no system at all in place to try to ensure that Redmond adhered to "the highest standards of integrity..."?
6. Will the system be left as is, i.e. will nothing be learnt from Redmond's "standards", or are changes proposed to the CLAE's expenses system?

Yours faithfully,

Robin Ford

Foi Officer, The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman
