Agenda item

Standards Update

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Head of Legal and Democratic Services and Monitoring Officer which informed Members of the ‘national picture’ on standards issues affecting Local Government (for copy see file of Minutes).

 

In discussing the report Members noted the outcomes of a NALC survey and were particularly concerned that it found that almost 40% of Local Councils had stated that their Members had not received training. The Committee supported the Chairman of NALC’s request to the Government for a review of the standards regime, and for investment in a national training programme.

 

Resolved:

 

That the report be noted and Officers continue to monitor the progress of the matters referred to and keep the Committee updated.
