Submitted – a collective application for dispensation by Members of the Isle of Anglesey County Council in relation to a report entitled ‘Provision of Free Breakfast Clubs in Primary Schools’ to be considered by the County Council on 29th September, 2015.  


The Head of Function (Council Business)/Monitoring Officer outlined the categories of personal and prejudicial interests which are listed in paragraph 10 and 12 of the Code of Conduct, and the test for prejudicial interests in paragraph 12.  She explained that dispensations may only be granted in specified circumstances which were listed in Document 3 of the documents attached to the Report to the Panel.   


The Panel RESOLVED as follows :-


·           All Members using, or who have a close personal associate (family or friend) using this service (or equivalent / similar / connected / related schools service) are provided with a dispensation enabling such Members to speak and vote, provided the issue relates to all/several schools;


·           The dispensation will extend to any future consideration of this issue (or equivalent / similar / connected / related schools service) for the remainder of the term of this Council and no further dispensation will be required;


·           Members will still have a personal interest under the Code; which they are required to declare at the beginning of the meeting or the outset of the relevant item.  Member declaration forms need to confirm that they are relying on a dispensation granted by the Standards Committee on the 24th September 2015.
