Hackney Council has failed to publish any of its large payments online since the end of 2017.
Local authorities are meant to publish any payments they make of over £500 at least every financial quarter.
But Hackney Council’s online register has not been updated since December 2017, with the first financial quarter of 2018 – covering January, February and March – still missing as of the middle of May.
When asked about this by the Hackney Citizen, the council admitted that the Q1 register is “outstanding” and said the payments would be published next week.
An Hackney Council spokesperson said: “The Transparency Code requires us to publish on a quarterly basis and we strive to publish the reports on a monthly basis.
“January, February and March will be ready and published within the next few weeks.”
The council did not provide a reason why the register has not been updated.
