“The Glorious Sixth”
CodHead celebrates clarification in the law that now ensures that there need be no further discussion regarding the right of members of press and public to film Council meetings. Only the Council’s feel they have anything to grouse about. Pick your targets and fire at will!
The Yorkshire Post – that venerable organ – confirms Eric PICKLES’ announcement:
“Local democracy needs local journalists and bloggers to report and scrutinise the work of their council, and increasingly, people read their news via digital media.
“There is now no excuse for any council not to allow these new rights.
“Parliament has changed the law, to allow a robust and healthy local democracy.”
