NALC Responds To BBC Investigation On Abuse Towards Councillors And Staff

NALC has responded to an investigation by the BBC into abuse and intimidation of people in local government. NALC is among several local government organisations, including the Local Government Association (LGA), warning abuse from members of the public towards councillors and staff poses a threat to local democracy, calling for more to be done to stop councillors being forced to stand down and to improve civility and respect in councils.
