      This is the extract from Roddison’s ‘Declaration of Interest’ he made as councillor and found on the RMBC website:

      ‘I am a governor at Brinsworth Whitehill School
      I am a Parish Councillor of Catcliffe Parish Council
      I am a member of the Labour Party
      I am a trustee of the Cash for Kids Charity that is run by Hallam FM
      I am on the district executive of the Rotherham Scout Council’.

    “The threshold for a convicted councillor to lose their seat is a sentence of three months in jail”.

    Very interesting it has some historical importance, maybe no rules were broken!

    Maybe what isn’t broken really needs fixing to provide communities with greater protection, from elected so and so’s.
