Wandsbeck DC has hired three former senior managers - who were made redundant - as consultants, reported The Journal (13 April p15).

The three are among 14 officers who accepted voluntary redundancy as part of a near £400,000 budget reduction.

Council leader Dennis Murphy defended the decision as the most cost effective way of putting in place a restructuring.

A council spokesman said they were being 'retained on a consultancy basis on three to four month contracts to allow recruitment at a lower level.'
