Charge correct rates for services provided

Some of the services that are provided by the Government to the public are too under priced and it costs he Government money to provide them. Also some departments provide services to others without any charge at all this should be stopped if a department want a service they should employ their own staff. 

Why the contribution is important

If a service it carried out the income should cover the costs and no work should be done for another department without any income if it was a private firm they would want money for the service provided.

    DEFA Building Control Officers charge for inspections -

    Time to make charges for Trading Standards Offcers, Envronmental Heath Officers, Heath & Safety Insepectors when they visit.

    Cut their budgets by 50% and they make up the balance by inspections.

    Users pay for services long overdue.

    The doi do work for the police at a cost of at least 250k plus every year that is not paid for but should be it is all very well saying that it all comes from the same pot but that isn't the point the police should do the work themselves or take on staff to do it.

    Without effective competition to provide a service, there is little pressure to reign in a tendency to just raise prices on the captive market each year to allow pay rises all round. Just look at the behaviour of private monopolies on the island.
