A two year disciplinary case against the director of Lambeth legal services has been dropped.

The South London Press (p2) reports that Paul Lally, facing allegations of exceeding his delegated powers and unauthorised spending, was paid more than£50,000 since being suspended in 1995 and is believed to have accepted at least£70,000 redundancy. Labour councillors estimate the cost of the enquiry at£1m.

The case was dropped on the recommendations of officers, the paper reports. Tory councillor Bernard Gentry, who was on the investigation panel, told the SLP: 'Very serious issues were being looked at which could have implicated other people within the present council. I think people might be afraid at what might have come out.'

A Lambeth spokeswoman said there had been no determination of any wrong doing by Mr Lally and no further action will be taken.
