Dear Brandon Town Council,

Under the FoIA I would like to request the following.

How many elected councillors at Brandon Town Council have a criminal conviction?

How many have spent conviction which are not discloseable under the rehabilitation of offenders act (RoOA)?

Are Council Officers CRB /DBS checked if so is this an enhanced check?

How often are CRB / DBS checks carried out on each Councillor?

How many Councillors have a drug related conviction currently or hidden by the RoOA? (no matter what class of drug)

Are Councillors obliged to declare any past criminal convictions spent or otherwise in case it effects their ability in office?

Are these declarations in the public domain?

Do BTC carry out random drug tests on employees?

Does this include Councillors?

Yours faithfully,

Alan G Brocklehurst
