We have 5 committees, 4 presently take place every month on the third Monday or Tuesday, with the last one being HR takes place "every 3 months or more if necessary. Sometimes, although not often, some of the others do not need to meet as there is nothing to go on the agenda. Presumably this is ok. No point having a meeting about nothing.
The Clerk has now suggested changing all Terms of Reference for Committees to "will meet when necessary. Just that, no specific date or month. Is this allowed? If not can anyone point me to the relevant legislation.
