HC Deb 17 August 1909 vol 9 c1074

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he is aware that the urban district council of Chiswick has suspended one of its members, viz., Councillor M'Connell, for three months, in consequence of him disobeying the ruling of the chairman; and whether he had sanctioned any standing orders giving the council power to suspend one of its members for three months?


I learn that the circumstances are as stated in the question. The standing orders of a district council for the transaction and management of their business do not require any confirmation or approval on my part.
