Questions Submitted Under Council Procedure Rule 9

In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 9 (Public Participation), one question has been submitted by Mr S Hearn, resident of Ladybank, Hanworth ward.

 

The full text of the question is set out below, to be answered by Councillor Allen, Chair of Governance and Audit Committee:

As you will be aware, there is a large number of people across the country who are concerned with the increase of tolerance towards racist comments that are being shared on various social media platforms and also within our national press. This is in conjunction with sharing of extremist ideology and bullying behaviours that are not compatible with what is expected of elected members chosen to represent the electorate.

What, if any, processes does the Council have in place for members of the public to raise concerns about a councillor’s behaviour or standards of conduct, and what does the Council do to ensure that any process it has is transparent?
