Should council officers be allowed to wear shorts and T shirts?

Brendan Barber, the TUC general secretary, has suggested to employers that they should relax the dress code in the heat. That staff should be told they can work in shorts and T shirts. This seems reasonable and I think Councils should accept his advice where council officers are not meeting the public.

The alternative is having the air conditioning blasting away at full throttle - with terrible implications for the energy bills and the carbon footprints of local authorities.
