Cornwall councillor Collin Brewer insists he will not resign, after he said disabled children should be 'put down' to save the council money.
Mr Brewer, 68, is an independent councillor for Wadebridge East and made the comment to a Disability Cornwall member at County Hall in Truro in 2011. He has apologised for his remarks and says he has received no calls to resign.
