HC Deb 17 December 1979 vol 976 c68W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will consider repealing section 80 of the Local Government Act 1972, which disqualifies teachers from standing for election as local councillors in the area where they work.

Mr. King

I have no proposals for amending those provisions of the Local Government Act 1972 which disqualify local government employees from election to the council which employs them.
