Surcharge And Disqualification Of Lambeth Councillors

EDM number 1200 in 1989-90, proposed by John Fraser on 27/06/1990.

That this House expresses its deep disquiet that 29 surviving former Labour Lambeth councillors, who have already been disqualified for five years and who have already paid over ú300,000 in surcharge and costs, have again been surcharged for ú212,726 and are sought to be disqualified for a further five years; deplores an unprecedented double penalty imposed for the same conduct which was penalised five years ago; and calls for the immediate remission of these further penalties and a reform of the law which discriminates against councillors as compared with other public representatives and infringes the civil liberties of those who seek election.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
