An internal investigation has been carried out into a district councillor's comments duing a debate about a rainbow pedestrian crossing.
At a full Mole Valley District Council meeting in July Patricia Wiltshire said people should celebrate their achievements and not their sexuality and made references to how she felt uncomfortable when watching “professional homosexuals” on television.
During the debate she stressed she would always protect people from being “castigated because of their sexual orientation”, but if people “flaunted it all the time” they would be “bound to come up against prejudice”.
Ms Wiltshire, who is deputy chairman of the council, said it was the word “celebrate” in the motion that she said had a problem with and that people should “celebrate human diversity”.
According to information released in a Freedom of Information request, an internal investigation was carried out by Mole Valley District Council’s deputy monitoring officer.
The council would not comment on the outcome of the internal investigation.
Ms Wiltshire said she was satisfied with the outcomes of the investigation.
