Strangely I cannot remember him attending a Council meeting in January, so thought it very odd when at the next meeting it was moved his name be added to those present (supported with a majority vote by Labour). I have subsequently challenged this and asked for an investigation. We were told he had forgotten to sign in - however, his signature now appears in the minute book. The votes at that Council meeting each was one person missing - he must have been in loo each time!
Tapes are usually kept for over a month unless the council has gone digital then it depends on the size of the hard drive
Not so Tricky Dicky, we wipe our tapes after a time otherwise they would use up huge amounts of server space. However, if the minutes have been doctored in January to cover up the fact that he wasn't actually there, that is fraud.
Our meetings are recorded but the tape has been wiped ! I'm sure Duwayne has checked some tapes - I'll see whether he has checked the entrance CCTV.
Weird thought - but does the Town Hall entrance have CCTV? If so that might be interesting to check!
