Highland Council spends £400,000 a month on agency staff

If Highland Council could manage a month without agency workers then there would probably be enough money to keep Nairn Swimming Pool open

'A COUNCIL faced with making £42million worth of cuts is spending almost £400,000 a month on agency workers, according to new figures.

Highland Council is also imposing a recruitment freeze, but yesterday it emerged it spent almost £3million on agency staff in the last financial year, around £250,000 a month.'
