Guest post: Glasgow Councillor Andy Muir writes to set the record straight on his future involvement in Glasgow City Council
Contrary to certain newspaper articles, as I have not indicated my intention to resign or will resign, I plan to attend all meetings of the City of Glasgow Licensing Board as a Board Member under the terms set out in the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005.
Before reaching this decision I consulted with the Chief Solicitor to Glasgow City Council and have been advised I act within the Licensing (Scotland ) Act 2005.
Moreover, I had this advice confirmed with an external legal licensing lawyer.
However, seeing as I was not consulted in any manner, has the Labour Group and the Business Manager acted within the terms of the said Act?
