The Local Government Transparency Code places requirements on local authorities to publish information in order to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision-making process and help shape public services”.

a) How many WLBC staff have been tested for Covid-19, Answer “This information is not held by the Council”.

b) How many WLBC staff have proved positive for Covid-19, Answer “22”.

c) How many staff in both a) and b) above have been in contact with the public? Answer “None”.

Readers might wonder how the positive answer in b) seems to be known in isolation to the negative answers in a) and c)?
