I can’t see how it could be illegal, but given the organisation that is doing this it sounds rather immoral.

Surely its the same as my local shopkeeper going to the wholesalers and buying something for say £1, then charging me £1.50 for it, on the grounds that he has costs to cover etc etc.

The council may have had to take on a comkmittment to pay whether they have someone there or not, so there may be “hidden” costs, but if not it still sounds like sharp (but not illegal) practise to me. 8)
