On the NHSGGC [NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde] website they have created a whole page of documents relating to the Lennoxtown sale to Celtic. And a quote from the main page reads (PCD means the Primary Care Division):
Therefore the minutes of that CORPORATE GOVERNANCE meeting which would have proven there was oversight on the transaction including:
Who was at the meeting – did they have the authority?
Was there representation by the appropriate departments? Was there a quorum – enough persons attended?
Were there any dissenters?
Did it actually take place?
However no minutes exist in the NHSGGC specifically either in the Corporate Planning or Finance depts to prove Corporate Governance took place.
Here is a public body responsible to taxpayers for a major asset sale not providing an audit trail so how could auditors sign off on the transaction?
So we now have two disappearing documents. Firstly the GCC Westhorn Geotechnical report that never was. And now the minutes of the NHSGGC meeting to approve the Lennoxtown sale. Because as the NHSGGC site says, when Tom Divers, CEO, signed the agreement he was just concluding the transaction. The only NHS senior management oversight was at the previous Primary Care Division meeting which minutes are missing.
Scottish Mainstream Media scared to report on the EU State Aid case
The last time they reported on the EU case against Celtic FC was early in January 2014 when it was claimed that Lennoxtown was not under scrutiny and it would quickly be shut down. Well thanks to a VB FoI request it has been verified that the EU has expanded the case to include Lennoxtown.
So much for shutting down the EU State Aid case against Celtic FC. It’s expanding.
Must be interesting for the NHSGGC explaining to the EU Competition Commissioner how the key paperwork is missing.
