The Debate

Although members, ostensibly, had a free vote, the decision was split completely on party lines; the Conservative group opposing the change to the byelaw, and the Liberal Democrat group in favour.

Surprisingly, considering the change was proposed by the LibDems, few of them made any meaningful contribution to the debate.

At the end of the meeting, a "named vote" was taken, which will show you how your ward councillors voted.
