Gender mapping cost

Further to my recent blog about Torfaen Council's "gender mapping" exercise I have now received the costs. £10,000 was spent on consultants and another £3,000 was spent on a conference to discuss it all which was attended by over 100 local government officers. One wonders how much time they spent discussing the future of one of their best schools, Ponthir, which along with three others faces closure because of Torfaen's chronic shortage of money.
