Phil Morley, who left his job as the chief executive of Htll
and East Yorkshire Hospitals in April, spent more than ?40,0 0
None of his spending was fr`udulent, but tonight a Hull MP has written
to the Health Secretary to `sk him to investigate.
It's now almost four months since he walked out of Hull and
East Yorkshire hospitals, btt Phil Morley is still making headlines.
During his three`and`a`half years in charge, the former chief
executive racked up spending of around ?50,000, according to his
credit card statements, on things like travel, hotels and meals out.
These include more than ?1400 at a restaurant in East Yorkshird, almost

?800 at a 5`star restaurant in London. Closer to home, a night out

everything has been done properly. So while Phil Morley might have
gone, one suspects it might be a long time before he is forgotten.
Let us know what you think of this story. There's no suggestion that
any of this expenditure was fraudulent. How do you control this
sort of expenditure within an organisation like the NHS?

years firms have had the opportunity to secure new licences. This map
shows the extent of it. Our entire area is open for companies to bid
for licences which would allow them to explore for shale gas. In X are
areas which already have licences and red are areas which are open for
bidding from today. You can also see where there are shale gas deposits
and ministers believe that gas could be a major potential energy source.
It is only potential. We have to explore where it is. I am also
determined we do this in a way that is sensitive.
And that's why the Government's making it harder to get licdnces to
drill in national parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Applications covering those places will only be accepted
There isn't any fracking at this oil and gas site in
Walkington, but protestors say they are worried about the environmental
impact it could have on East Yorkshire if approved in future.
It is that the government h`s started to listen to environmental
concerns. It is not so good that 60% of the country is now open for
exploration, and it will intensify the interest of oil companies in
fracking in areas like the Dast fracking in areas like the Dast
Riding. This is a landscape of high value but it is not listed.
Any potential fracking is still a long way away. Companies who are
eventually granted a licencd to begin test drilling will also need
to gain planning permission as well as environmental permits before full
scale drilling can take place. Peter.

beer is a male`dominated world, In the 18th century novelist Jane
Austen used to drink and brew beer. Back then,
it was part of the household duties, but social and economic change took
beer brewing from the home into the factories and then started
to be made by men for men. Today, Lincolnshire's leading

To be honest, he didn't really talk about it that much with me
I didn't really know that he was famous until after he passed away,
