Local Government: Code of Conduct

Volume 699: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they intend to issue the model code of conduct for local authority officers.[HL1964]

The Government are committed to considering the introduction of a statutory model code of conduct for local government employees. In taking this forward, we wish to be able to take into account any lessons learnt from the first year's operation of the revised model code for local councillors, which came into effect in May 2007. We therefore intend to consider further a model code for local authority employees later this year, following our review of the impact of the model code for local councillors.
