Judicial review into One Barnet outsourcing scheme begins at High Court this week
A judicial review into Barnet Council’s decision to outsource millions of pounds worth of public services will begin at the High Court this week.
Disabled campaigner Maria Nash is challenging the authority’s One Barnet scheme on the grounds the public was not properly consulted.
Under the programme, the council is looking to outsource almost £700million of its services to the private sector.
The judicial review is expected to last for up to two days when it begins on Tuesday.
