There were several ways to report: on a form; in person; or to a relevant external body if one oversaw the functions.


Members confirmed that people could remain anonymous when they made contact.

(1)  the contents of the Whistleblowing policy be noted;

(2)  comments they have in respect of the Policy be provided to the Constitution and Standards Committee; and
