A SENIOR Conservative councillor has questioned the quality of the accounts for the annual festival in Thurrock called T Fest.
Orsett councillor, Mike Revell told the full council meeting that he had seen a set of accounts.
He said: “I am using T Fests accounts as an example of the type of accounts that, under new guidelines, will simply not pass inspection.
“If any private business produced this set of accounts then they would be jumped on by the inland revenue.
“I will take one entry for example which says Artists and agents: £19,588. Where are the bills, where are the receipts?”
Council leader, John Kent rejected the criticism.
He said: “If cllr Revell checks his e-mails, he will see that a full explanation is given there.”
