The Leader of Shropshire Council has been found guilty of offending against the principles of Integrity, Honesty and Leadership set out in the Council’s Code of Conduct. Not to worry. Their Standards Sub-Committee has issued a statement:

“In accordance with the Council’s procedure for the resolution of findings of a failure to comply with the Code of Conduct, Members of the Sub-Committee were satisfied that the proposed apology and commitment of Councillor Barrow to undertake training represented a reasonable outcome without the need to hold a formal hearing.”
