A meeting of the RCT Council Standards Commttee was held earlier today. The meeting was held out of the gaze of press and public but we have been led to believe that the result was a four month suspension for Penygraig Councillor Ken Privett.
This follows closely on the heels of the suspension of former Chair of Planning and Labour Councillor for Tonyrefail East, Bob McDonald who was suspended for six months for planning irregularities. The details of the case against Cllr Privett are not yet in the public domain.
Rhondda Cynon Taff Council will no doubt not be in any hurry to put out a press release about this incident - they did not say a word about Cllr McDonald. Apparently only good Labour news is allowed through their press office.
