Written answers (Question to Housing)

Local authorities are independent in the discharge of their functions and the directly elected members are democratically accountable for all expenditure of their authority. Specific details in relation to local authority public liability insurance are a matter for each individual local authority insofar as local authorities themselves organise their insurance arrangements collectively for the sector. I have no function in the arrangements involved.
