I was not aware that hundred of councils across the country had contracted out running of pools and leisure centres. Private companies have asked for millions of pounds to re-open them.
In Southwark peter John stated one Contractor wanted £20 million to to reopen and run centres and pools across London until end of financial year. This is what happens when business people take over things that should have been kept in Southwarks hands. Things that were paid for by taxpayers over the years.
In Southwark £5 million is wanted...the pools etc. Could remain closed for several months due to Covid? If bleach kills the virus the chlorine may too.
