Recording of this meeting is allowed to enable those not present to see or hear the proceedings either as they take place (or later) and to enable the reporting of those proceedings.  A copy of the recording protocol is available from the contacts named on the front of this agenda.


Use of Recordings by Third Parties– code of practice


a)  Any published recording should be accompanied by a statement of when and where the recording was made, the context of the discussion that took place, and a clear identification of the main speakers and their role or title.


b)  Those making recordings must not edit the recording in a way that could lead to misinterpretation or misrepresentation of the proceedings or comments made by attendees.  In particular there should be no internal editing of published extracts; recordings may start at any point and end at any point but the material between those points must be complete.
