Chorley Guardian reports on Labour councillors suspension

Chorley Conservatives regret that Chorley Council's standards committee has had to meet and find against a local Chorley Borough Councillor.

Councillors do a great deal of good work for the communities they serve, and it's really important that they provide factual information and not disclose information marked as confidential. The matter surrounding this particular case caused by a leaflet distributed by Labour's Cllr Christopher France led to a great deal of alarm with residents who had received misleading information about a housing development. Local Conservatives were forced to circulate their own rebuttal leaflet to counter the harm that had been done.
