Storm Brews at Conwy Council meeting !
(Extract from North Wales Weekly
News Oct 7th 04 by Martin Williams)
Conwy County Council leader Emlyn Davies came under attack from former
leader Ronnie Hughes and several other members of the Council. They criticised
Coun Davies for not declaring an interest sooner in the debate over slate
waste being transported along the Conwy Valley line.
At the start of the meeting, the Independent leader Coun Davies asked to
be excused from the chamber as he has a brother who owns land alongside
the route, and as Network Rail will pay up to £250 a day to access
it, Coun Hughes argued that he should have told the council months ago.
"He has sat through meetings on this, so the proper conduct has not
been adhered to" said Coun Hughes.
"Under this new Cabinet its worse than the KGB. They wanted to withdraw
these 2 items (slate waste, etc ....) from the agenda and there are more
secret deals being done than ever before."
This report begs the question ... considering the fact that two of the
Conwy County Council cabinet members who voted to support the slate waste
project have since declared an interest, is the decision of the new cabinet
to support the slate waste project legal?
Is this a case for the ombudsman?
