Turkey trip criticised

First published in News

Plans to send a Ceredigion employee off to Turkey for a conference at a cost of £850 have been criticised.

Gill Byrne is representing the county at the International Play Conference in Turkey and will be giving a presentation on the Ceredigion National Play landscaping project.

But at this week's lifelong learning scrutiny committee, Cllr Ceredig Davies questioned the wisdom of sending a delegate abroad in times of financial cut backs.

"I don't think this sends a good message to the public at all," he said.

Families first co-ordinator Cathryn Morgan said that the cost of the trip had been scaled back as last year two delegates attended from Ceredigion.

"It is a good profile raiser for us ," she said.
