A PUBLIC inquiry into the interests of councillors and their links to the voluntary and community sector is to be launched, it has been announced.

It comes after a Peer Review report raised major concerns about the perception that some councillors act out of self-interest and the perceived lack of rigour around the declaration of interests of Hartlepool councillors.

Today we ask: Do you agree with the decision to hold an inquiry into Hartlepool borough councillors’ declaration of interests?
