For immediate release
Responding to revelations of South Cambridgeshire District Council failing to publish data or produce a business case for the four-day week trial, Elliot Keck, head of campaigns of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“South Cambridgeshire residents are being let down by this reckless and unfair trial.
“Opaque decision-making has made it increasingly clear to taxpayers that this experiment should never have been sanctioned in the first place.
“The council must surely call time on this farce and stop the clock off once and for all.”
