Points of Order

Meeting Finance and Governance Committee 

Meeting date: 16 March 2021

Raised by: Alderman Behrakis


Are statistics kept regarding points of order raised in meetings and the rulings of them?

If so, what proportion of points of order raised against the Lord Mayor have been upheld or dismissed by the Lord Mayor?

Given the potential perception of conflicts of interest in situations where the chair is ruling on themselves, what changes to council procedures can be made to address this issue without conflicting with the Local Government Act?

What measures / protocols do other Council’s use to address this issue?
