Question S1W-34379

To ask the Scottish Executive what action it will take to assist local authorities in addressing the quality of performance of direct labour organisations (DLOs) and direct service organisations (DSOs), following the finding of the Accounts Commission’s Overview of the 2001/02 local authority audits that the percentage of DLOs and DSOs breaking even has fallen since 2000-01.

Scottish Executive officials met formally with representatives of those local authorities with significant deficits earlier this year. These discussions established the causes of the deficits, and that recovery plans were being developed for the DSOs and DLOs in question. Progress against the recovery plans will be monitored and kept under review.
