It is worth noting that Gordon Copeland also played a very useful role in the decision to censure Peters.
Gordon filed the Privileges Complaint that Peters got caught on. Rodney filed one relating to payment of a debt while Gordon’s was on receiving gift. And in the end it ws Gordon’s complaint that held up.
Now I suspect that even if Gordon’s complaint had not gone in, the Privileges Committee would still have have made the findings they did, as even if the original complaint was under one section of the rules of the Register, they would not ignore a breach under a different rule.
But regardless worth noting Gordon’s useful role in this.Tags: Gordon Copeland, Privileges Committee
