Isles of Scilly chief executive Philip Hygate under scrutiny
The conduct of the Scilly Isles top administrator is to come under scrutiny at a special meeting next week.
Philip Hygate, chief executive of the Council of the Isles of Scilly, has recently been at the centre of a row about the treatment of the former headteacher of the islands' only school.
Now his own actions will be examined by a special gathering of the Policy and Resources Committee to be held on Tuesday, October 30. The meeting will be held behind closed doors and will discuss "employment issues".
An official notice about the meeting will be published shortly but it is understood its sole purpose is to debate the work of Mr Hygate.

The development is the latest twist in a story which surfaced in May when Bryce Wilby, head teacher of Five Islands School on Scilly, was suspended.
Mr Wilby subsequently resigned and it emerged that an as yet unpublished investigation was looking into alleged financial irregularities.
Mr Wilby was also at the centre of a vote of no confidence by the majority of his staff.
