The ADC has welcomed the Audit Commission's report on performance indicators which endorses the view that indicators should be consistent.

Consistent indicators mean that year on year comparisons can be usefully made for an individual local authority, say the ADC.

Bill Mackay, Chairman of the ADC's Management and Human Resources Committee welcomed the commission's response to comments by local authorities, for example, keeping the total number of indicators to a manageable level, keeping changes from last year's direction to a minimum and introducing for the first time indicators on leisure, environmental services and highways.

But Mr Mackay said: 'The ADC also remains concerned about the legislative requirement to publish at national level comparative figures on local authority performance. It says that league tables would inevitably lead to unfair comparisons being made between local authorities regardless of their circumstances.'
