LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - NO QUESTION OF FORCE

Your story about Westminster City Council staff facing relocation or redundancy was misleading (LGC, 26 January)....
Your story about Westminster City Council staff facing relocation or redundancy was misleading (LGC, 26 January).

Vertex employs 288 permanent staff in Westminster, of which only 175 transferred over from the council. Around 100 jobs are to move to Dingwall.

All of the former Westminster staff who have transferred over to Vertex affected by this are being offered continued employment by Vertex in Westminster. No one is being forced to move to Dingwall.

The Gershon agenda set the challenge of finding efficiencies to free-up resources for services. The government is itself relocating some of its backroom services and I have no doubt that other councils will follow suit.

Robert Davis (Con)

Chief whip and cabinet member for customer service, Westminster City Council
