Liberal Democrat group leader Ian Yuill said: “I was shocked when the Conservative / Labour / Independent coalition which controls the council proposed Councillor Donnelly for the position of Depute Provost. We believe he is completely unsuited for this important civic position. His behaviour over recent years makes us fear the worst over his shock appointment.”

Ian Yuill continued: “I am sure anyone who has seen how Councillor Donnelly can behave in council meetings will be as surprised and disappointed as we are by his appointment as Depute Provost.”
