Motions Submitted under Part 4A, Procedure Rule 9 of the Council's Constitution


By Councillor Geoff Brodie

That Council, in recognition of the diversity of religious beliefs and no beliefs in the community we represent, resolves to end the practice of offering largely Christian prayers as a formal part of the opening proceedings of Full Council meetings.


Instead it is agreed that any such prayers will be offered before the formal opening of Full Council.
