Section 449 of the Local Government Act 1993 requires a Councillor or a designated person to complete and lodge with the General Manager, a return disclosing his or her pecuniary interests. That return contains personal information about each Councillor and designated person, including his or her name, address and signature, as well as information about property and share holdings, gifts received, debts owed, other sources of income, and positions held in a trade union or business or professional organisation.
