The Committee on Standards in Public Life (CSPL) advises the Prime Minster on ethical standards across the whole of public life in the UK. It monitors and reports on issues relating to the standards of conduct of all public office holders and promotes the Nolan Prnciples of Public Life; selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accounability, openness, honesty and leadership.
The Committee produced an ethlcal checklist to help inform the public about the proposed approach to standards of all candidates seeking election to the post of PCC.
I am happy to confirm that I have complied with the priciples set out in the checklist during my first term in office and will continue to do so during my second term.
