We, the undersigned, petition the Council to introduce an ethical commissioning and procurement policy to stop G4S

More details from petitioner:

G4S is a security company alleged to be involved in human rights abuses. We call upon the Council to introduce an ethical commissioning and procurement policy which provides guidance on the exercise of discretion to exclude tenderers on the grounds of grave misconduct including human rights abuses, anti trade union practices and tax avoidance and fraud.

Any supplier which has committed a breach of the ethical policy should be considered to have committed an act of grave misconduct in the course of its business and should be excluded from tendering unless and until it can demonstrate that it has taken appropriate remedial steps. Any exclusion must be appropriate to the scale and nature of the offence or misconduct.
