THE recently revealed previously confidential reports into Welcome to Yorkshire show that almost £500,000 has been spent on the fallout from Sir Gary Verity’s departure.
This figure includes the costs of ordering the independent investigations into the allegations against him.
Given that one of the reports was written by the now ousted interim chairman Keith Stewart, and the other jointly by a Local Government Association representative and an independent financial adviser, it has to be asked why the costs of these investi- gations are so staggeringly high.
This tourism agency continues to be funded with taxpayers’ cash and much further transparency is required in relation to these costs if Welcome to Yorkshire is to show it has moved on from the reckless spending of the past.

WHAT a fine mess WTY have got themselves into. When are we going to get to the bottom of this sorry saga? We seem to clear one item then discover another one comes popping up! Any more and people will not look to Yorkshire in the same light.
