A survey of 413 local councillors by ComRes for the Local Government Chronicle reveals that the answer is, unfortunately ‘C’:

  • 61% had received media training;
  • 51% had received training in community engagement;
  • Just 49% had received financial management training.

The survey also found that (1) Labour councillors were less welcoming of new councillors than Conservatives and (2) bullying is a real problem in many town halls.  More on the survey here.
