To Highways England:
‘It appears either the information you are providing me is incorrect or your witness, a BBMM employee, has made incorrect statements to a Judge, specifically HH Godsmark to whose Judgement I have referred you.’
In Area 10, managed by BBMM to 04/2019, the Authority say they have no price list for what their contractor will charge them following repairs to Crown property. Conversely, BBMM told a Judge there is a price list
Who to believe?
BBMM also told the judge that the price list was not a reasonable comparison to the (much higher) rates they charge Third-Parties because the schedule was subsidised. The Authority says the prices are not subsidised … presumably, because they claim there is not one.
Given the contradictions, as the contractor says they have a set of rates and they use these to bill HE only, why has Highways England not done the sensible thing … ask the contractor for them!
Possibly they will, the FoIA request can be found here.
