City councillor Gavin Webb could be thrown off a school's board of governors after making controversial calls to legalise heroin and prostitution.Liberal Democrat (Libertarian) councillor Gavin Webb's position is being reviewed after publicly expressing controversial views.
Thistley Hough High School, in Penkhull, could now decide to sack him from its board of governors.
The chair of governors, Gill Miller, said she is seeking advice on Mr Webb's position in light of complaints about comments he hasmade.
She said: "I have alerted the governing support unit at the city council and the governing body is currently considering Mr Webb's position."
Talking about drugs, Mr Webb said: "I believe we should legalise the lot, including the most harmful substance heroin."
He has also described the police's drug-busting Operation Nemesis as a "waste of money".
He has also said: "The only person one can trust in protecting one's own life, is oneself. That is why I also advocate that individuals should have the right to carry a handgun."
