Process to Develop Ballot Paper on Care
In order to develop the ballot paper members were sent a draft ballot paper on Care in advance of the meeting on March 13. Members were sent this ballot paper through a survey and were asked to provide feedback on these recommendations. Additionally members had the opportunity to table further recommendations they wished to be included.
From these responses the ballot paper was revised. The changes to the ballot paper at this stage can be found here and the Chair explained these changes here.
Members were sent this revised ballot paper in advance of the March meeting which can be found here.
