The requirement to consider a business case when employing interim staff has been removed from the NALC model when producing new draft Financial Regulations.  The argument is that the authority for interim staff has been delegated to the Clerk.  The implication appears to be that the Clerk doesn't need to document a business case for employing interim staff.  This seems rather reckless in my opinion - do you agree?  What would you recommend?

Is the delegation permanent, or just an emergency measure for the current situation?

It seems that it's permanent!  Seems a little dangerous to me.
Indeed. Is there a budget for interim staff?
