The Wright Partnership

Some time ago we learned of Shaun and Lisa Wright’s financial interest in an hotel, the Dryfesdale. Funny how he neglected to declare this when he was a Councillor on RMBC?

  1. What happens if I don’t follow the rules on disclosable pecuniary interests?
    It is a criminal offence if, without a reasonable excuse, you fail to tell the monitoring officer
    about your disclosable pecuniary interests, either for inclusion on the register if you are a
    newly elected, co-opted or appointed member,or to update the register if you are re-elected or re-appointed, or when you become aware of a disclosable pecuniary interest which is not recorded in the register but which relates to any matter; that will be or is being considered at a meeting where you are present, or
    • on which you are acting alone.
    It is also a criminal offence to knowingly or recklessly provide false or misleading information, or to participate in the business of your authority where that business involves a disclosable pecuniary interest. It is also a criminal offence to continue working on a matter which can be discharged by a single member and in which you have a disclosable pecuniary interest.
    If you are found guilty of such a criminal offence, you can be fined up to £5,000 and disqualified from holding office as a councillor for up to five years.

    Wright is no longer a councillor and it is very doubtful RMBC’s Monitoring Officer will do anything at all. The previous failed M/O refused to investigate Dalton’s non-declaration of her ‘Gangs and Grooming’ business interests (Under instructions from Lakin) so RMBC has previous history of ignoring the law when it suits their purposes.
