Executive Council met today with just one substantive item on the Open Agenda. This was an amendment to the Telecommunications Regulations, 2018. Members decided to defer this item pending further work.

Under any other business, Members agreed that the open agendas of Executive Council and Council Committee meetings should in future be recorded and made available to the public. This would be subject to an appropriate protocol being put in place to guide the process, and is in keeping with Members’ ongoing commitment to being open and transparent.

There were no substantive items on the closed agenda but under any other business the issue of the recent outbreak of Listeria related to certain frozen products in the UK was raised. Members were reassured to learn that there is no imminent threat to public health, and that further information regarding this would be included in a press release which will issue later today.

The meeting closed at 11.10am.
