§ Mr. Needham
The Local Government Auditor has written to a number of former and serving members of Craigavon borough council setting out the matters which he proposes to take into account in relation to this case. The recipients have until 19 February 1988 to make written representations and to indicate whether they wish to seek an oral hearing. Following this the Local Government Auditor will decide whether to proceed with the issue of a certificate under section 82(1) of the Local Government Act (NI) 1972, as amended by article 28 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) (NI) Order 1985, that the loss has been incurred due to wilful misconduct.
It is entirely a matter for the Local Government Auditor to decide on the action to be taken in such cases.
