Early start in politics for councillor’s son | Letters

Stella Creasy’s article on taking babies into the House of Commons (Here’s why my baby was banned from parliament – and why we must all fight this, 25 November) brought back memories of Mid Glamorgan county council in the 1990s. The late councillor Ray Davies, of Machen, a champion of equalities even then, was often accompanied by his infant son. During an impassioned debate at a planning committee meeting, one councillor declared that another “has no right to speak on this subject. Ray Davies’s baby has been to more meetings on this matter than he has.”
