BAR Council members were due to vote on Saturday on a motion to oust Crown Prosecution Service head Barbara Mills QC from the council.The motion, put by council member Bob Sheddon, says her position as a senior civil servant "has been shown by recent events to be incompatible with her ex-officio membership of this council".The motion, which requires a change in the constitution, needs a two-thirds majority to be passed.It follows the suspension by the CPS of senior Crown Prosecutor and Bar Council member Neil Addison in October for writing newspaper articles on advocacy issues.Sheddon, a barrister and senior court clerk, promised to move against Mills in December. "If his [Addison's] right to express his viewsis being stifled by employment regulations and his employer is sitting on the council, then democracy is at an end," he said.
