1. SSRB REPORT AND 3 NOVEMBER RESOLUTIONS

The Committee agreed to consider at its next meeting a draft of the detailed provisions necessary to give effect to the 3 November Resolutions, and a paper on options on how to proceed with the IEP proposal remitted to it by the House.

2. SEVERANCE PROVISION FOR MEMBERS STAFF AND BOUNDARY CHANGES

The Committee agreed that Members' staff who were made redundant as a result of boundary changes should be treated in the same way as those made redundant in other circumstances where a Member did not stand again: Members affected by boundary changes should be advised to meet with DFA officials to be briefed on the redundancy and related payments currently available.
