HITTING THE ROOF OVER COUNCIL INDECISION

A roofing contractor claims that local authority indecision is partly to blame for his company reporting a first-half loss of £960,000 before tax, The Daily Telegraph reports (p27).

Ian McPherson, chief executive of Ruberoid, said poor administration and indecision, rather than lack of investment, prevented councils from awarding major contracts for roofing on schools, hospitals and daycare centres.

He did not pinpoint particular authorities, but said that English councils were generally worse than Scottish ones.

Bad weather was also cited as a reason for his firm's poor showing.
