Can a clerk refuse to put on agenda items when requested by a serving cllr.

0 votes
As cllrs are still legally cllrs until four days after an election, can a clerk refuse to include agenda items submitted by a cllr prior to the end of the four days for future agendas and even if the cllr fails to be re-elected, as long as the requests have been submitted in accordance with Standing orders. If the clerk can't refuse the request, what action can be taken against them.

No.  But only the council can do anything about it.
