Have your say

Morley councillors have reacted to new guidance on media relations that they believe could be bad for democracy.

Under new guidance from the National Association of Local Councils (NALC), journalists would not be able to contact parish and town councillors directly, instead needing permission from a town clerk.

Morley would be particularly vulnerable to this rule, as Morley Town Council, Gildersome Parish Council and Drighlington Parish Council would all fall under this.
