EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

STANDARDS COMMITTEE

28TH JANUARY, 2019

 

 

APPLICATION FOR DISPENSATION BY

COUNCILLOR KEN LLOYD

 

An application for dispensation has been received from Councillor Ken Lloyd in respect of his roles as both a County Councillor and a member of Carmarthen Town Council.

 

The application relates to his personal interest as a member of MIND

 

Councillor Lloyd would have a personal interest in any council business relating to or likely to affect the provision of mental health services by virtue of paragraph (10)(2)(ee) of the members code as the organisation is a private association in which Councillor Lloyd is a member.

 

This interest would be prejudicial as a member of the public with knowledge of the relevant facts would reasonably regard the interest as so significant that it is likely to prejudice his judgement of the public interest.

 

The application is made on 1 ground specified in the regulations, namely that his participation would not damage public confidence in the conduct of that Council business.
