  • There will be a further maximum combined time of five minutes to speak in support and up to two persons may speak within the five minutes.
  • No speaker may speak for more than half this time (two and a half minutes) UNLESS there are no other requests to speak received by the deadline OR it is with the agreement of the other speaker.

 

*The Chairman has agreed to exercise his discretion to enable speakers to join the meeting remotely on MS Teams if preferred. For further information please contact Democratic Services.
