Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Schedule

1The first meeting of the board shall be held at such time and place as shall be fixed by the Local Government Board.

2The chairman of a board is entitled to preside at every meeting, but if at any meeting the chairman is not present at the time appointed for holding the same, the vice-chairman shall be entitled to preside, and if neither the chairman nor vice-chairman be present, the members present shall choose some one of their number to be chairman of such meeting.

3The chairman may at any time call a meeting. If the chairman refuses to call a meeting after a requisition for that purpose, signed by five members of the board, has been presented to him, any five members of the board may forthwith on that refusal call a meeting. If the chairman (without so refusing) does not within seven days after such presentation call a meeting, any five members of the board may on the expiration of those seven days call a meeting.

4Three clear days at least before any meeting of a board a summons to attend the meeting, specifying the business proposed to be transacted thereat, and signed by the chairman or clerk of the board, shall be left or delivered by post at the usual place of abode of every member of the board. Want of service of the summons on any member of the board shall not affect the validity of a meeting.

5To constitute a meeting of a board there must be at least one third of the members personally present.

6All acts of a board, and all questions coming or arising before the board, may be done and decided by the majority of such members of the board as are present and vote at a meeting held in pursuance of this Act. In case of equality of votes the chairman of the meeting shall have a second or casting vote.

7Minutes of the proceedings of every meeting shall be drawn up and fairly entered in a book kept for that purpose, and shall be signed by the chairman of the meeting or of the next ensuing meeting.

8Subject to the foregoing provisions of this schedule a board may from time to time make standing orders for the regulation of their proceedings and business and vary or revoke the same.
