Scrutiny stifled at WC

August 21, 2020 9:05 PM

Wiltshire Council's Conservative administration is using the opportunity of the Covid crisis to diminish oversight of the executive by backbench councillors.

Whilst other council meetings are proceeding as on-line events, public meetings of the Health, Environment and Children's committees scheduled for September have been axed. In their place there will be strange secret meetings of committee members with officers and cabinet members. No further formal public meetings of the committees are scheduled.
