Glasgow city councillors are to be issued with a code of conduct that prevents them accepting gifts or money worth more than£20, reports the Scotsman (p4).

The code is part of the council's 'name and shame' charter aimed at weeding out alleged corruption, cover-ups and sleaze.

Councillors who break the rules will be thrown off committees or denied the privilege of representing the council at conferences. An all party standards committee of councillors - the first of its kind in Scotland - is also to be set up to deal with allegations of impropriety against councillors.

Council leader Frank McAveety hailed the committee as a blueprint for every authority in the battle against the public perception that councillors are crooked.
