Chance to show transparency

I would like to congratulate the Scarborough News for publishing the expenses of Scarborough Borough Council’s chief executive Jim Dillon.

However, we are not a lot wiser apart from his excursions to Indian restaurants.

The question I think most people would like answering is who warranted £249.93 being spent on them at the Elton John concert?

In these days when the Government and local councils are telling us that they want to be more transparent and open to the electorate, this is an opportunity to display those principles.
