KE VII spending falls under financial watchdog’s mandate
Monday 28th January 2013, 10:00AM GMT.
THE States financial watchdog will discuss whether to investigate spending at the King Edward VII Hospital.
It has been in the spotlight since Health and Social Services was forced to reveal it cost more than £2.9m. to run the facility.
Deputy Mike Hadley, who argues it should be closed on value-for-money grounds, believes there are even more costs, which the department has not disclosed, which should be taken into account.
Public Accounts Committee chairman Deputy Heidi Soulsby, pictured, confirmed the issue was within its mandate and would be discussed.
The committee is also set to carry out a review of the department’s finances as a whole.
