Any complaint to the MO is treated as personal and confidential between MO, the complainant and the person being complained about. This is the position taken if it is a complaint from one councillor about another's conduct. It is nothing to do with the Parish Council until a decision and any recommendations are made by the MO. The PC cannot discuss or comment on the matter even in confidential session until the MO's decision is in the public domain. Every decision is made public knowledge and the MO decision is given in full.
