Councillor Steve Tulley is about to defend himself to Wakefield Council over claims he was ‘intimidating, aggressive and bullying’ at a child protection meeting.

The complaint was made against Coun Tulley after he attended a child in need meeting between two of his constituents and social workers on July 17 last year. The complaint alleged that social workers were left ‘very upset’ and the meeting was stopped due to Coun Tulley’s behaviour, described by health workers as ‘challenging and confrontational’.
But Coun Tulley denies the accusations, saying the social workers had acted improperly in the case against his constituents, a complaint that was upheld by the council.
The initial complaint was referred to the council’s standards committee, with the report being put before the council meeting today (Wednesday).
