Dundee City Council - payment of invoices

Following a Freedom of Information request made recently by an MSP regarding the speed with which local authorities pay invoices due, the Scottish Daily Express reported that Dundee City Council failed to provide the information requested.

I queried this with the City Council's Head of Democratic and Legal Services, and was advised:

"The Scottish Daily Express report was inaccurate.  We submitted a reply on 12 June to Margaret Mitchell MSP's Researcher."

I consider it important that the City Council pays invoices promptly - and particularly local suppliers.
