Haringey Council has been blasted by Liberal Democrat politicians for spending £42,000 on bottled water over the last three years
The information was revealed in a response to a question from Lib Dem Councillor Jonathan Bloch (Muswell Hill). The Lib Dems say the council is wasting taxpayers' money on unsustainable products and failing to follow its own green agenda.
Cllr Ed Butcher, Lib Dem Environment Spokesperson, comments;
"Apart from the money Haringey Council is wasting, I am appalled by the unnecessary impact to the environment. As Haringey Labour sit in meetings struggling to come up with ideas to make the council more sustainable, they are completely oblivious to the water bottles sat on the table in front of them. The obviously do not have a clue when it comes to even the most simple solutions to make the council greener."
