The requirement for an annual review of salary budgets has been removed from the NALC model document in a draft Financial Regulations proposal.  The argument for this is that this is dealt with by the Staffing Committee rather than Full Council.  However there is now nothing in the FRs to require the Staffing Committee to carry out this annual review!  Am I missing something?  Are the Financial Regulations only relevant to items covered by Full Council? I thought that FRs covered every part of the operation of the Council.

Yes, they are the Council's Financial Regulations and may be amended to refer to delegation where appropriate (and legal), but they are required to govern the financial affairs of the Council as a whole.
