Sharon Shoesmiths childrens services department spent 23.8m on external advisers for the boroughs school renovation programme between 2005 and last year. The money -- four times the recommended level -- would have been enough to build one school from scratch, or fund 740 social workers for a year. MPs condemned the shocking bill, which mounted while Baby Peter was suffering months of abuse from which he eventually died in August 2007, despite being on Haringeys at-risk register. The figures led to fresh questions over the management of childrens services by Mrs Shoesmith, who was dismissed over the Baby P affair. lynne Featherstone, lib-Dem MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, said: This looks like an unbelievable sum. Haringey have a lot of explaining to do. It looks like they did not know what they were doing. We need to be sure that they havent simply squandered this money. If this happened on Sharon Shoesmiths watch and is found to be gross incompetence with public money, then we need to know what her role was. Haringey said the 23.8m figure was misleading and the bill was paid from the Governments school building grant, not other council services.Axed: Shoesmith Bigmortgagelenders starttocuttheirrates PLEASE RECYCLE YOUR COPY OF LITE RESPONSIBLY PMARTIN STREl emerges from the Thames on his way to the london premiere of Big River Man at the BFI Southbank.

Barclays lending arm the Woolwich, HSBc and cheltenham & Gloucester, part of lloyds Banking Group, all announced reduced rates or new products. HSBc unveiled a discount deal with a starting rate of 1.99 per cent, but only for people with a 40 per cent deposit and with a 1,199 arrangement fee. The cuts result from recent steep falls in banks wholesale funding costs. The key inter-bank libor lending rate is down to 0.68 per cent, back to its pre-credit crunch range of 0.15 per cent to 0.2 per cent above Bank of England base rate, now 0.5 per cent.
