More H & S Nonsense

*Tuts*
I don't see where it mentions council tax money being spent.
Yes the bhpa does receive some funding from the local council, however in this instance they were acting as a private management company, employed by the tenant of the block of flats.
The residents who were ordered to remove the plaque actually pay the bhpa to manage their interests in the flats.

Thanks Pal h - corrected.
So it may not have been the local council but a private management company - it's still a stupid instruction to issue.
