Mr Stone became Leader of Rotherham Council in 2003. He stood down as Leader following the publication of the Jay Report into sexual exploitation of children in Rotherham in August 2014.
In September the Committee launched its own inquiry into the findings of the and it’s chairman, local MP Jay Report to examine number of issues relating to local government. The initial conclusions of this inquiry were published in the Committee’s Third Report of Session 2014-15, ‘Child sexual exploitation in Rotherham: some issues for local government’, on 18 November.
An opportunity for the Committee and It’s Chairman, local MP Clive Betts, to get at the truth and do their duty by the people. Unless, of course, they chose to simply grandstand.
