It is the law that no decisions may be taken except at properly convened meetings at which the issue to be decided has been put on the agenda and notice of the meeting and agenda is given at least 3 clear working days before a meeting -excluding the day the notice and agenda is published and the day of the meeting. Occasionally in a fast moving situation decisions have to be taken more quickly in which case they must be ratified at a subsequent public meeting.
