It has met only three times since last December to discuss the code of conduct but not a single allegation of irregularity by councillors or officers has been made to the 15-strong panel.
Philip Mould, vice-chairman of the committee, said: 'We are delighted that so far the committee has not had any complaints made against councillors or officers. But this does not mean we are complacent. We are prepared and ready to look into any allegations that are made.'
A council spokesman said the committee had looked at a range of issues surrounding behaviour in public life and had taken steps to encouraging staff to whistleblow. He said the latest meeting had been cancelled 'due to a lack of sufficient business to justify a meeting being held'.
