Announcements from the Lord Mayor

Matters especially brought forward by the Lord Mayor.




Members, today’s meeting is open to being filmed.  I remind those filming that the right to film is limited to the duration of the meeting and recording must cease when I close the meeting. 


Filming or recording is not permitted if the effect would be to interrupt or disturb the proceedings or if it is intrusive of a specific individual or individuals.  If in my opinion this is occurring, it will not be permitted and I will ask you to stop.


Similarly, some members of the public attending the meeting may object to being filmed, photographed or recorded.  I will be making those attending the meeting today aware and will ask those filming, to respect their wishes, and will expect that these are complied with.
