An investigator working for the Local Government Ombudsman stated
‘The remedy that was offered to you at the end of that report was not exactly what she wanted she felt it was reduced by the Ombudsman. I mean it was outside ****’s powers completely but she felt that the remedy was not satisfactory’
(**** I removed the name of the individual)
Now we know that the Ombudsmen dilute the remedies suggested by investigators to make them more palatable for their friends in the Council.
