Lost luggage, a High Court Judge and a Saudi Prince

Public Law and Judicial Review

Philip Kolvin QC discusses the issues confronting local councillors and the need for a consistent approach to standards of conduct in an interview with Bloomsbury Professional. Philip looks at two cases in which judges ruled quite differently over similar conduct issues, but which both sound a note of caution to councillors involved in decisions in which they may have an indirect interest.

Philip and a team from Cornerstone Barristers have produced Cornerstone on Councillors’ Conduct, a practical guide to the standards that govern the conduct of those elected to Local Government in England and Wales. The guide is relevant to all those involved in local government, including officers, councillors, monitoring officers and lawyers. For further information visit Bloomsbury Professional online.
