Duration of an appointment

12. In terms of Rule 12.1.8 appointment as a convener is for the duration of the committee unless the convener:

resigns by intimating his or her resignation to the Clerk.
is removed by a decision taken by an absolute majority of the committee on a motion lodged under Rule 12.1.8A;
ceases to be a member of the Parliament or the committee.
In practice, if a convener does intend to resign, he or she should tell the clerk to the committee and follow this up with a letter as soon as possible. The clerk will then deal with the relaying of messages and the copying of letters as required.
