Assisting Constituents Card
13th February 2019
We have produced a card outlining what elected members can and cannot do for their constituents. The idea is for members to be able to hand the card out at surgeries, to help them manage their constituents’ expectations and to raise awareness that agreeing to take certain actions could lead them to be in breach of the Councillors’ Code of Conduct. The card can be found here.
