A very important week for many people in Barnet, the meeting of the general functions committee is likely to be the most significant although the least publicised. This is because this meeting is discussing the new management structure for One Barnet. If these changes are implemented, it is unlikely that the Council will be able to function properly without a major outsourcing, as there will be no management structure left.

Do our elected representatives realise what they are approving? I doubt it. Interestingly the document does not mention One Barnet, which is why it is being implemented. I suspect that officers are not being as frank with elected representatives as they should be.
