More councils let in the light

September 06, 2010 12:44 PM

Harry Phibbs over at the ConservativeHome blog has noted that more councils have decided to publish all spending over £500. The Coalition's Programme for Government document outlined the following:

"We will require all councils to publish items of spending above £500, and to publish contracts and tender documents in full."

Currently, councils do not have to publish their spending to the Coalition's specifications, so it's great to see more and more local authorities signing up to this of their own volition.

The list of councils (and one fire authority, encouragingly) currently publishing spending online is below. If there are any more, do let us know. (Hat-tip Cllr Harry Phibbs.)
