Council spends £95,000 on Dome hospitality

Greenwich Conservatives have condemned the local Labour Council for spending £95,000 of taxpayers money on a hospitality suite at the O2 - the former Millennium Dome.


Leader of the Opposition Cllr Spencer Drury appeared on BBC London's Vanessa Feltz show yesterday to express outrage that the Council was spending this sort of money on corporate hospitality at a time when £8 million of cuts have been made to services in the current year alone - and over £20 million in the four year cycle.


This story had been picked up by the Daily Mail and has provoked widespread condemnation from its readers.
