SNP Group Withdraw from Council Administration (19/06/08)

Members of the Scottish National Party Group on The Highland Council have notified the Chief Executive, Alistair Dodds, that they have withdrawn from the Administration, which has political control of the Council.

This leaves 33 members of the Independent Group in the Administration.

Mr Dodds is providing guidance to the political groupings on procedure while at the same time preparing for the next meeting of the Council on Thursday 26 June.

He said: “Staff have been advised that it is business as usual and my guidance to them is to continue dealing with councillors and office-bearers with the usual courtesy. I will be providing councillors with the necessary procedural advice over the coming days and ensuring that the important day-to-day business of the council is delivered.

“We have a Council meeting on Thursday 26 June and this will go ahead as scheduled.”
