TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to minister’s intervention over council four-day week

For immediate release


Responding to Lee Rowley’s letter to South Cambridgeshire District Council demanding an end to their four-day week experiment, Elliot Keck, investigations campaign manager of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Local taxpayers will be delighted to see the government joining us in opposing the council clock-off.

“A local authority which residents rely on for key services is not the place for a radical four-day week experiment. 

“Any other public sector body considering implementing similar trials should do taxpayers a favour and scrap the plans.”
