Further to this. Yes, it is true. 

The Conservative West Lancashire District  Council statement read out on the Roger Philips show, about why pensioners’ banners and placard were banned in the Council chamber for the budget setting councl meeting on Wednesday night, says:

It’s not normal practice for banners to be hung in the chamber because of Health and Safety reasons’

It’s here if you want to listen to it (about 1 hour, 116 mins in), though you’ll need Realplayer.

Thank you to Erica for the research.
