    It's the same in industry.
    I worked for JLR and no gifts could be accepted.

    At least the good old Ethics Committee were there with the big brush to sweep it under the carpet :)

    He "technically" breached the code, but again it is fine.

    Why have one?

    No worries they are going change the code.

    I had to sign an anti bribery agreement at my last job that said you can accept or give nothing over £5 in value.

    I've worked in places before where if suppliers send freebies (Tvs, iPods etc) then they usually go into a Christmas Charity Raffle or something or go direct on eBay and the money given to charity.

    It just shows, the council and councillors will do what they want and not give a shit.

    He breached the code so they're going to change the code so he hasn't breached it.

    Years ago well the early 90's I worked for s food wholesaler and at Xmas I had to put raffle tickets onto the bottles of free booze we had whilst sitting doing it in the chairmans office he came in and took all the champagne and decent wine and put it in his fridge and said you lot can have that rubbish I'll have this a multi millionaire tight arse.

    Two years later I had to do the same and we had such a little amount of gifts the finance director got a palette sent to the office for me to label.

    Yep, the one who has got the new job as well I think.

    The message that sends out is, be a total fuckup and get a promotion :)

    The only reason JLR would have invited him would be to gain favour in some aspect to benefit their business. I work in construction and there are constant invites to the clients for events but it has to be closely monitored. All staff have to sign an anti bribery agreement also and the rules are usually quite straight forward and clear!
