Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this.
As for as being financed by the Council, if it was in the course of her business as a Councillor then yes it would be funded by the Council
As for whether or not there is a fund you would need to write and ask under the Freedom of Information Act.
You need to ask the question first whether such a fund exists
Then if it does whether or not this Councillor has paid into it
You may not get the answer to the second one as this is private information under the Data Protection Act
But if the conduct was in the course of business as a Councillor then yes the Council, or insurance would pay for this
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
In that case the Council will not be funding it.
It is a private matter
Does that help?
But she may have legal cover on her own insurance, ie car or home
The site is public but once you rate I can lock it
The Solicitor can take on whatever case they want - it does not have to be limited to the code.
Your personal details are not public so you can not be traced
