Letter to council tax payers went out in Labour council leader's name
A STANDARDS COMMISSION hearing has resumed into seven Aberdeen councillors who sent a letter to residents ahead of last September's independence referendum.

It claimed that Aberdeen would be stronger as part of the UK.

Aberdeen councillors set for fresh probe over letter urging residents to vote 'No'
Hearing underway into alleged misconduct by Labour councillors
SEVEN Aberdeen councillors are facing a fresh investigation into a letter sent to residents ahead of last September's independence referendum.
The Standards Commission will examine whether the councillors broke its code of conduct after they sent a letter with council tax bills in June, urging people in the city to back a No vote.
The alleged breach has been considered serious enough to warrant a hearing.
