Report of the Monitoring Officer (copy attached).
49.1 The Committee considered a report of the Monitoring Officer with an update on allegations about Member conduct following the last report to the Committee on 25 September 2012; a summary of closed cases was listed at Appendix 1. The Complaints Manager also verbally updated the Committee on the Standards Panel that had been held since the publication of the agenda in relation to an allegation of a potential breach of the code by Councillor Lynda Hyde; the outcome of the Panel was that there had no breach of the code of Conduct and the reasons for this decision were outlined to the Committee. It was also highlighted that there was a right of appeal, but this had not been exercised and was due to expire at the end of the week.
49.2 RESOLVED – That the Committee note the report.
