Temporary Conveners

11. A temporary convener can be appointed where a committee does not have deputy convener or the deputy convener is unable to act in that capacity either during or between meetings. This allows a meeting to proceed even where the convener and deputy convener cannot attend. In that situation, the oldest member takes the chair to allow the committee to choose a temporary convener, who when chosen has all the functions of a deputy convener and can chair a meeting in the absence of the convener. The clerks will advise members on the procedures to be followed should it be necessary to appoint a temporary convener.
