[To consider the future Work Programme of the Committee.]
Members considered the future Work Programme of the Committee.
Following the establishment earlier in the meeting of the Standards Working Group to assist with the 12 month review of the new standards regime, the MO requested that the review of the operation of the Protocols on Member-Officer and Member-Member relations also be looked at by the Working Group.
As there would be quite a lot of work involved with reviewing the Protocols it was further requested that the Protocols element be referred to the 10th October 2013 Committee meeting for consideration.
(a) that the Work Programme be approved; and
(b) that the Standards Working Group also look at the review of the operation of the Protocols on Member-Officer and Member-Member relations in advance of the full Committee’s consideration of these at its meeting in on 10th October 2013.
