Matters Arising


Single Use Plastics

The Chairman informed Members that stainless steel re-usable mugs were available free of charge from the Town Clerk’s office and Members would be responsible for the washing up of these cups. The Chairman added that he would attend the House Committee of the Guildhall Club on 8 March 2018 to discuss the issue of single use plastics within Members’ areas. In response to a Member’s query, the Chairman explained that Members would be responsible for arranging the labelling of their own mugs.


The Chairman advised that following a query received at the last meeting of the Committee as to whether the cups in the Members’ Room were recyclable, confirmation had been received that both the internal and external layers of the cups could be recycled via a special process.


United for Wildlife

The Chairman confirmed that since the last meeting of the Committee, he had signed the papers for the City Corporation to sign up to the Royal Foundation’s United for Wildlife Transport Taskforce.
