Members were also asked to appoint the Chairmen of each of the sub-committees.

 

To better reflect the operational requirements of the Licensing Sub-Committees, Members were asked to formalise arrangements for the appointment of substitute members on the sub-committees by adopting the provisions of Council Procedure Rule 4 with the amendments outlined in Appendix 1 of the report.
