You must also register to speak at the meeting. The deadline for registering to speak at any Committee meeting is 4pm two full working days before the Committee meeting you want to speak at.

Committee meetings are normally held on Tuesdays or Thursdays. For example, the deadline for submitting a request form is 4pm on the Thursday before a Tuesday meeting, or 4pm on the Monday before a Thursday meeting.

If you try to register after this deadline, or if you don’t register to speak, you will not be allowed to speak at a Committee meeting.
