The fight for Sheffield’s trees has its roots in a £2bn private finance initiative (PFI) deal signed by the Labour-run council in 2012. The contractor Amey is tasked with maintaining the city’s 36,000 roadside trees as part of a road maintenance agreement.
The council has repeatedly refused demands from residents – including Clegg – to disclose an unredacted version of its contract with Amey.
Now the Guardian has learned that several of the city’s most senior councillors – including the council leader, Julie Dore – have not seen the unredacted contract despite publicly defending it.

I am surprised about the novel usage of the legislation.
