Arrangements for Future Meetings

The date of the next meeting of the Panel is:


·         Monday 12 February 2024 at 3pm


At the meeting of the Panel on 3 July 2023, it was discussed whether to continue to hold these meetings ‘virtually’ or whether it would be preferable to meet ‘in-person’.  The general consensus was to continue to meet ‘virtually’.  However, it was proposed that perhaps one meeting per year could be held ‘in-person’. 


Therefore, it was agreed to discuss further future arrangements.
