Hemsworth district councillor Shaun Hodson has been suspended from the Labour group for three months.

Coun Hodson faced disciplinary action after he put forward a motion proposing an amendment to the group’s Wakefield Council budget earlier this year.

The amendment, which was rejected as it did not meet the relevant criteria, asked councillors to reverse a decision not to pay town and parish councils across the district a council tax support grant worth £400,000.
