An Independent councillor from Cornwall a MR. Collin Brewer, made startling remarks about putting down disabled children as they were too costly
The comment was made to Theresa Court, advice services manager of Disability Cornwall which complained to the council's standards committee.
Ms Court said: 'I was absolutely horrified anyone would make such a depraved comment, let alone a Cornwall councillor at a public event.
'As far as I was concerned, I had a duty to make a formal complaint against Councillor Brewer to seek appropriate justice.'
Her charity had a stand at an information event in Truro in October 2011. She was on hand to tell councillors about the issues they face and the work they do with parents of children with special needs.
Mr Brewer approached the stand, where there were parents of disabled children, and asked what the charity did. According to Ms Court he said that children with special needs cost too much money.
