An audit report on a body I sat on for ten years is a great shock.
It appears to have been run in part as private fiefdom to benefit the members of the board. In the seventies and eighties I represented the Gwent County Council on the Caldicot and Wentlooge Levels Drainage Board. It is quango that spends council tax money. During my years on the board I was unhappy because the landowner and farmer board members tended to take decisions that favoured other landowners and farmers rather than those in modest homes in newly built estates.
I am seeking reassurances on the work of the Board in order that I may consider whether the remedial action taken so far is adequate to protect the interests of my constituents.
