Brent budget making process threatened by suspension of Director of Finance

The news that Clive Heaphy, Brent's  Director of Finance has been suspended while allegations of gross misconduct are investigated deals a further blow to Brent's budget making process that takes place at this time of the year.

A Brent Council spokesman said the allegations were not related to financial irregularities and Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of the council, said, "Suspension is a neutral act and does not imply guilt in any way. When allegations are made, you have to follow them up and that is exactly what we are doing."
