Resolution from the Standards Committee

To receive a resolution from the Standards Committee.


The Committee considered a resolution of the Standards Committee which related to the issue of Members with children at the three independent City Schools being effectively precluded from serving on the Board of Governors.


Members agreed that this situation was unfortunate and contrary to practice at other independent schools or with parent governors more generally. Reference was made to the proposals at Item 18 and the way in which the provisions of Local Government legislation were perhaps inappropriately applied to the City Corporation’s non-local authority business. It was asked that this be explored.


RESOLVED: That the resolution be noted and that officers be asked to explore a solution to the issue identified.
