Councillor L Davies Declared his Interest in Item Three – Issuing of a Section 188 Letter to Trades Unions as his wife is a Council employee.


Councillor D Roberts advised that he had sought clarity on Item Three – Issuing of a Section 188 Letter to Trades Unions as it did not deal with individual staff members as it was a 188 Letter and he did not think that he had to declare an Interest and enquired if this was correct.


The Monitoring Officer responded in the affirmative and advised that the same would apply to Councillor L Davies.
