Declaration of Interests. (new paragraph
Grand Lodge are keen to find out which Local
Authorities are continuing to single out Freemason employees for declaration of
membership or are using Freemasonry as an example of a 'secret society' which
The Provincial Information Officer would be grateful if you could make enquiries
and if possible, forward the necessary paperwork (or at least tell him where to
find it on the internet). Your personal details will of course be treated with
the utmost confidence.
Please send all relevant information to Brian Wright, 'Caradon', School Lane,
Great Wigborough, Colchester. CO5 7RJ or email@example.com
Rulings in the European Court leave no doubt that requirements for a
'declaration of interest' which are specifically aimed at Freemasonry are
illegal, and these are challenged in the most robust manner. Many Councils have
now withdrawn all references to Freemasonry in their recruitment documentation
for Council employees. As has the Justice Department in their dealings with
Judges and JP's.
Portsmouth City Council and Fareham Borough Council have now withdrawn all
references to Freemasonry in their recruitment documentation for Council
employees. Hertfordshire County Council have also withdrawn references to
Freemasonry in their recruiting documentation.
