News

Following a year long parliamentary enquiry into ethical standards in local government, a report from the Committee of Standards in Public Life has made formal (requiring legislation) and best practice recommendations for changes to be made on ethical standards in local government, full report available on their website http://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/the-committee-on-standards-in-public-life

Cllr Sue Baxter, chairman of NALC, said: “NALC is fully committed to promoting and supporting the highest standards of conduct by local councillors and officers in the first tier of local government, which is increasingly playing a bigger role in communities including the delivery of public services and community facilities.

“Whilst the present regime is not fundamentally flawed, it does require some strengthening, therefore I am pleased the Committee on Standards in Public Life has listened to the concerns of NALC, county associations of local councils, and local councils themselves.
