Disciplinary Committee hearing on 26 February 2013

William Bircham (03129), Hertford, Hertfordshire

The Disciplinary Committee upheld two allegations that Mr Bircham had breached the Code of Conduct in force at the time. He had not responded to the allegations. The Disciplinary Committee was satisfied that he had been properly served with the necessary notices and that the documentary evidence, including some from an independent third party, proved the allegations to the required standard. The Disciplinary Committee expelled Mr Bircham from membership because it determined the breaches were very serious making expulsion the only proportionate penalty.
