Any Other Business

5. In response to a Member’s question on whether the Chairman or Deputy Chairman of this Subcommittee would also be eligible to stand for election as chairman or deputy chairman of a Panel, the Assistant Secretary General advised that the Standing Order which required that “A Member shall not be the chairman or deputy chairman of more than one Panel at the same time” only referred to Panels. This requirement was not extended to other committees of the Council. In the case of the ESC, separate procedures had been endorsed by the Finance Committee which allowed all Members of the ESC to stand for election as chairman or deputy chairman of the Subcommittee. There were cases in the past that Members who held the office of chairman or deputy chairman of the Finance Committee or its subcommittees were also chairman of a Panel at the same time.

Date of Next Meeting

6. The Chairman advised Members that the ESC meetings would normally be held on Wednesday at 10:45 a.m.., except for the first meeting which would be held on Thursday, 2 November 1995 (1 November being a public holiday). The schedule of meetings for the 1995-96 session would be forwarded to Members shortly.
