Secret Report Completed Into Councillor Who Said Disabled Children "Should Be Put Down"
7:01am 27th June 2013
A secret report has been finished into the Wadebridge councillor who said disabled children should be put down.
Collin Brewer apologised and quit over the comments.
Since then he has been re-elected and quoted comparing them to deformed lambs.
He insists those comments have been taken out of context.
Cornwall Council launched an investigation into Mr Brewer's remarks, with the new leader saying his position had become "untenable."
A group of councillors will discuss the findings, drawn by a senior lawyer, later but Pirate FM has been told we will not be allowed to see them.
The meeting of the Standards Committee will be closed to the public while the discussion takes place.
Their views will then be passed to the monitoring officer who will make a decision on whether there has been a breach of the Councillors' Code of Conduct.
That decision will be made public and is expected next week.
Hayley Goleniowska lives near Newquay. Her daughter has Down's Syndrome. She said: "The truth is this: That our wonderful children are incredible and strong of spirit. They contribute far more to our communities than can ever be counted in pound coins. Our children are our greatest teachers.
"There has been anger, disbelief, upset and much, much worry.
"I shudder to think of the time and resources that have been directed towards this investigation which might have been avoided had he simply stepped aside."
Mr Brewer could not be reached for comment.7:01am 27th June 2013
