East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) has confirmed that they “have begun an investigation into the Data concerns” I raised yesterday.
I am informed that given the failure of the ERYC Legal Department they could be exposed to extensive legal actions.
I highly recommend to ERYC that the investigation is prompt, addresses all the failings, and takes the necessary actions as a matter of urgency. This MUST include informing all East Riding residents of the failure and offering them an unreserved apology.
It would appear that the incompetence of Mathew Buckley, ERYC Head of Legal and Democratic Services, has placed ERYC in “another fine mess”. Time to leave the building Mathew?
