Urgent Business

 

 

 

The Lord Mayor (Cllr Tony Downing) reported that he had received a request from Councillor Douglas Johnson for permission to ask aquestion relating to urgent business, under the provisions of Council Procedure Rule 16.6(ii).  The question related to recent events in Myanmar and in Russia.  The Lord Mayor stated that he would not grant permission for the question to be asked, for the reason that the question did not relate to urgent business that needed to be responded to at this meeting, but instead advised Councillor Johnson that he may wish to seek a written response from the Leader of the Council, or alternatively, he may wish to consider submitting a notice of motion on the matter when this process resumes at the Council meetings.
