'Calls for police probe into school private finance deal':
'COUNCILLORS will this week be asked to call-in Police Scotland to carry out a “new, full and thorough” investigation into North Ayrshire Council’s controversial Schools Public Private Partnership (PPP) project.
In a Motion to be heard at tomorrow’s (Wednesday) meeting of the full Council, the SNP’s Tony Gurney and Independent Ronnie McNicol will ask councillors to instruct the current Chief Executive, Elma Murray, to invite Police Scotland to carry out a new probe.
The Schools PPP contract was signed in 2006 by the then Council Chief Executive Ian Snodgrass.
With a value, at the time, of £80m, the project to build and maintain four local schools is now costing North Ayrshire Council over £1m every month and will eventually cost local taxpayers over £400m.
The schools built were St Matthew’s Academy, Greenwood Academy, Arran High School and Stanley Primary School.
The move follows revelations in a documentary, The Only Game In Town, which appears to show there was only ever one credible and viable bid for the multi-million- pound council contract.
Documents shown in the film indicate council officials were told a second bid had failed to meet required standards at the first Key Stage Review, but the bid was allowed to remain.....'
