This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Waiting for an internal review by East Devon District Council of their handling of this request.

Dear East Devon District Council,

After I requested an investigation via Peter Halse, Denise Lyons your monitoring officer stated in a letter to myself that it was not true that Graham Brown and Roy Stuart stood down from EDDC after an investigation by the LGO that found them guilty of serious maladministration.

I have sent evidence to Denise Lyons and c.c. your Chairman Peter Halse and your CEO Mark Williams that proved they did stand down after the LGO investigation.

My question to Denise Lyons that she has refused to answer was : did she carry out an investigation and if so why did she say it was not true, or did she chose to cover up the matter by denying it?

I am sorry I have once again had to revert to What do they know to try and get an answer from EDDC and would appreciate your proper reply answering the question within 20 days.

Yours faithfully,

helen newman
