Minutes:

The Committee had been circulated with this report from the Group Head of Technical Services prior to the meeting.  However, due to a misunderstanding, the tracked changed draft Policy had not been attached to the report included in the agenda but had been circulated via emal to all Members.  A view was expressed that the Policy should therefore not be considered at this meeting but should be deferred to enable Members to fully consider the proposed changes.

 

            Without the Group Head of Technical Services being asked to present the report, and having been formally proposed and seconded, the Committee

 

RESOLVED

 

That the matter be deferred to the next meeting.

 

 (The meeting concluded at 9.45 a.m.)
