04:15:26 Motion by Councillor C Pain (In introducing his proposition for the second motion, Cllr Pain referred to a complaint he had received that implied it was untrue that Cllr Ayling had become a barrister. For the purposes of clarity, the Monitoring Officer has confirmed that he has seen a copy of the Call to the Bar Certificate awarded to Victoria Hensher-Brooks, the former name of Cllr Ayling. He therefore concludes that that Cllr Ayling is entitled to say that she became a barrister.)
