The items on the review of bad debts and auditor recommendations by Full Council have been removed from the NALC model in a proposed set of Financial Regulations.  The argument is that because the NALC model document states that these should only be addressed by Full Council - and this is not the process followed by the Council.  Outside of the FRs it has been stated that bad debts and auditor recommendations are reviewed by the Finance Committee before being referred "back to Full Council".  But this process is excluded from the draft FRs.  Am I missing something?

You have made the argument for them to be included in the FR. Hopefully it's just an oversight. I would just raise it as it seems sensible to have that included otherwise if it's not cited in the FR it could appear that The Council can't  consider debts at all and therefore can't act.
