East Hampshire councillor’s Europe role

Councillor Robert Saunders, from East Hampshire District Council, will sit on the Congress of the Council of Europe – the local government section of the authority.

The Congress meets twice a year in Brussels and Cllr Saunder’s job will be to promote human rights and democracy across Europe.

Cllr Saunders, who represents Alton, said: ‘The Congress has helped to strengthen local democracy in countries which, for historical reasons, have suffered dictatorship and lack of independence in recent centuries and I am eager to play my part in this ongoing work.’
