Lancashire suspends chief executive

  • Comment

Lancashire CC chief executive Phil Halsall has been suspended, following a review of the tender process for a contract to run the council’s fleet services.

The decision to suspend Mr Halsall (left), pending a disciplinary investigation, was taken by the council’s Urgency Committee yesterday.

Jo Turton, the council’s executive director for environment, will become interim chief executive with immediate effect.

In a statement, Lancashire CC said it “will be making no further comment pending the outcome of the disciplinary process.”
