Colchester Conservative barred from council for failing to attend meetings

A Conservative councillor in Colchester has been removed from his post for failing to attend any meetings in 6 months.

Mark Cable claims that work commitments prevented him from attending a single meeting in 6 months. The last full council meeting he attended, where the bulk of council business is debated, was in December last year.

Despite failing to attend any council meetings he continued to claim his £6,572 allowance.
