Our latest agenda only includes approval of the minutes of the last two meetings. However the minutes of an earlier meeting from over two months ago, that are published in draft on our website, have not been approved. Should I raise this as a point of order at the start of the meeting? Our Standing Orders don't make it clear whether minutes should be approved at the next meeting after they are published.
What controls should Councils have to make sure that all minutes are approved?
Our Standing Orders state that minutes should be published five working days after each meeting, however, due to workload, our Clerk is failing to meet this timescale. Can Committees ask the Clerk to prioritise the production of minutes over other work in order to get minutes produced in a timely way?
