Notes to the Notice of Annual General Meeting

Special Resolution to Change Article 14.4
The change is only to the word “shall” to the word “may” at the start of the first and second sentences. The effect of the changes removes the obligation to have commissions (shall) but retains the opportunity to have them in the future (may). This reflects that the Commissions have ceased to operate for more than two years and this work is now undertaken by committees.
