Deirdre bottles motion
A last minute suggestion by Cllr Deirdre Wadding calling for a water dispenser to be used in the council chamber instead of bottles of water, was not supported.
The People Before Profit councillor said: 'If as a council we pride ourselves on our environmental awareness - every time we have a meeting there are over 70 empty bottles. Why don't we just have big drums of water and we can fill our own glasses?'
Her suggestion carried no water with councillors in a rush home after a long, hot day in County Hall.
