Attendance register published

Have your say

THE Wigan Observer this week published for the first time the town hall’s attendance register.

A Freedom of Information request shows exactly how often our elected members have represented voters at meetings over the last two and a half years.

They reveal that less than a quarter of the borough’s councillors have attended all of the main legislative body’s meetings since May 2010.

Since then, 26 of the 94 councillors who represent the 25 wards have missed more than three gatherings of the full council.

Also during that time only four out of 13 cabinet members have not been absent from one or more meeting of a the authority’s “inner sanctum” while only six of the 22 members of the Planning Committee have attended all of their meetings.

One of those members with the best full council attendance records is the leader Lord Smith. This despite his battling cancer during that period, although he did miss five cabinet meetings.

Readers should note that some other councillors missed meetings due to serious illness - such as former mayor-elect Coun Henry Cadman and one, Coun Robert Bleakley, was suspended for six months.

It should also be explained that this year saw a major streamlining of committees.

The full list is
