Motion text

That this House calls on the directors of Municipal Insurance Co., its affiliate Zurich Mutual Insurance Co., and Municipal Mutual Insurance's solicitors, Browne Jacobson, to desist from all further anti-democratic actions in relation to Clwyd County Council and the report by John Jillings retired Director of Social Services of Derbyshire County Council into child sex abuse at children's homes in Clwyd, and in particular to desist from their request to the county council to remove from office the Chair of the Social Services Committee; and further calls on the Secretary of State for Wales to consider whether it is proper for an insurance company specialising in local government insurance to conduct itself in a manner which threatens the primacy of the duty of a local authority in child protection to put the welfare of children first, attempts to set the duty of looking after the council's finances and the insurance company's own claims liabilities above child protection, and uses the threat of voiding the council's insurance cover and the transfer of financial liability from the insurance company to individual councillors as a means of suppressing the truth, and to amend regulations governing local government insurance if necessary.
