Mr Parnell attended the Executive Meeting of Stockport Council to ask for help for his troubled daughters adopted from Stockport Council. Nobody listened; nobody cared.

Mr Parnell asked a question about the extent to which literature about Human Rights Act was studied by members and officers.

The then Leader of the Council Dave Goddard responded that Executive Councillors had been briefed on the legislation and invited the questioner to put any issues of concer in writing.

Mr Parnell had done this hundreds of times and had been ignored.

The Executive Councillors present at that meeting were –

Goddard, Derbyshire, Alexander (Shan) Bodsworth, Candler, Clay, Hogg, Pantall, Weldon and White.
