We have learnt that the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone recently announced £4.4million for Ealing to be spent on local transport improvements. Unfortunately our inquiries to the council on how this money is going to be spent have hit a wall of silence.
On 21st Jan 2007 we sent the following email to Ealing Customer Services:
“It has come to our attention that Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London hasdedicated £4.4million to Ealing to be spent on local transport improvements. Could confirm that this is indeed the case, and who we can contact to find out more on how this money is going to be spent.”
The Multimedia Section Team Leader at Ealing Council replied on 25th Jan 2007 as follows:
“I have passed your email on to Mike Donnellan, who will provide further details on your query.”
Having had no response we emailed again on 31st Jan 2007:
“Any chance of a reply from Mike Donnellan?”
We have had no reply to date. We telephoned Mike Donnellan today and left a message. Let’s see what happens.
So much for customer services.
