IT upgrade a 'failure'
A COMPUTER system upgrade at Swansea Council was branded a failure by the cabinet member of finance.
Labour councillor Rob Stewart said the Service@Swansea programme signed off by the Liberal Democrat administration in 2004 was supposed to deliver £26.3 million in savings.
"It delivered almost nothing like that," said Mr Stewart, who claimed the figure was "barely" £1million.
He said: "If that is not failure, I don't know what is."

The Liberal Democrats did not challenge Mr Stewart about the Service@Swansea claims.
