Cornerstone on Councillors’ Conduct and Standards in Public Life: Second Edition

Cornerstone on Councillors’ Conduct and Standards in Public Life is a practical guide for anyone involved in the field of standards in public life in the United Kingdom, from Parliament to parish councils.

This completely revised Second Edition explains the law and practice regulating holders of public office in the UK:

- Section 1 provides a comprehensive review of local government standards in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland

- Section 2 addresses standards regimes including the Ministerial Code, the House of Commons and the House of Lords, Police and Crime Commissioners, members of Combined Authorities and ‘Metro Mayors’ and the Senedd Cymru, Scottish Parliament and Northern Ireland Assembly

- Section 3 contains a detailed discussion of standards issues than tend to arise in practice, such as official capacity, freedom of speech and bias and predetermination

This book – the only text dealing specifically with the subject of councillors’ conduct and standards in public life – will be essential reading for holders of public office and anyone with responsibility for regulating their conduct.

Written by a team from Cornerstone Barristers led by Matt Lewin.
