In today's Budget meeting, Conservative Councillors voted to stop their votes being recorded, preventing the public from knowing how their local Councillor has voted.
Lib Dem Group Leader Jon Hubbard said "This unprecedented action to suspend the Council's Standing Orders, and stop recorded votes, removes any responsibility for the actions of individual councillors. We are public servants who must be responsible to the public who elected us. The Conservatives have chosen today to hide how they vote, and so hide from all responsibility for their actions."
