TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to Nottingham City Council declaring bankruptcy

For immediate release


Responding to Nottingham City Council issuing a Section 114 notice, an effective declaration of bankruptcy, Elliot Keck, head of campaigns of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Nottingham is a case in point that when councils go bankrupt, it is financial incompetence that is to blame.

“These town hall bandits have been playing fast and loose with taxpayers’ money for years, and it’s the poorest who will pay for the excesses of the fat cats. 

“This should serve as a warning to council leaders up and down the country thinking of gambling with residents’ cash.”
