Deputy police commissioner to reflect on calls to resign position as councillor
HUMBERSIDE’S deputy police and crime commissioner Paul Robinson said he will reflect upon his position as a councillor after colleagues urged him to resign his seat.
A motion describing the posts as “incompatible” was yesterday approved by members of East Riding Council, the authority on which Conservative councillor Mr Robinson sits.
He had attempted to head off criticism of him combining the two roles by saying he will give up his annual £10,711 councillor’s allowance, as reported on www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk yesterday.
But the move failed to satisfy his fellow councillors who voted by 54 to five to support the Labour motion.

It comes after the police and crime panel voted by eight to one against his appointment as PCC Matthew Grove’s deputy.
After the meeting, Councillor Robinson said: “I am going to reflect on what has been said this afternoon before making any further comment.”
