Councillor Ahmed failed to declare business interests

An interesting article today on Councillor Ahmed who was in the past expelled from the Labour Party. 

“A CITY councillor responsible for employment and skills did not declare interests with five companies involved in training, enterprise and community development – until questions were raised by the Evening Post.

 Questions have also been raised by the Evening Post and a local MP about Councillor Hassan Ahmed’s connections with a sixth company, Central Education and Training, which owns the Nottingham Training and Enterprise (NTE) college site.

Coun Ahmed was given his portfolio on the Executive Board at Nottingham City Council by the authority’s Labour leader, Councillor Jon Collins, in May this year.

In correspondence, Coun Ahmed initially said his interests were recorded properly, but when the Post put to him the list of five companies of which he is a director and which did not previously appear in his register of interests, the councillor said he would now record them….

If a councillor does not declare an interest as required, the local standards committee can either publicly censure them, restrict their access to council buildings or resources for up to six months or suspend them from the council for up to six months, or order them to carry out training or write a written apology..”

    So now these undeclared interests have been exposed, Coun. Ahmed will register them… That’s alright then.

    And all these “businesses” suckle at the public teat.

    This is going to run and run and, I suspect, get bigger.
