The Questions they want to ban

This Friday, the Conservatives who run Lincolnshire County Council will try to ban written questions at council meetings.

As member for Deeping St James, I often table detailed written questions to take up local issues, as I value the on-the-record answer that I get from a member of the Executive which is then published in official Council papers.

On Monday of this week, I gave written notice of five questions for this Friday's meeting - the last time I'll be allowed to do it.

I've listed the questions on the next five blogs for you to browse.

I'd be interested if you think these are worthwhile, or a waste of time, as the Leader of the Council, Martin Hill suggests.
