Appointment of deputies

10.—(1) Each constituent council or group of constituent councils appointing a member of the Authority may, at the same time or at any time while any member so appointed holds office, appoint a person to act as a deputy for that member by attending and voting at any meeting of the Authority from which that member is absent.

(2) A person who is appointed to be a deputy for a member may not, so long as his appointment continues, be appointed to act as a deputy for any other member.

(3) A person appointed to be a deputy may, subject to the provisions of this Order, be so appointed for such period and on such terms and conditions as may be specified in the appointment, but any person so appointed may at any time resign his office by notice in writing given to the town clerk or clerk of the council by whom he was appointed or in the case of a member appointed by a group of councils given to the town clerk or clerk of the first named council in that group, and the town clerk or clerk of the council in question shall, upon receipt of such notice, forthwith notify the Secretary of the Authority of the resignation.

(4) A person shall cease to be entitled to act as a deputy for a member if that member vacates his office, unless that member is forthwith re-appointed as a member.

(5) A person appointed to be a deputy for a member may also attend and vote at any meeting of any committee of the Authority, being a meeting of the committee at which the member for whom he is deputy was entitled to attend and vote and from which that member was absent.

(6) The provisions of this Order relating to the giving of notices of the appointment of members of the Authority and to the disqualification of a person for being such a member shall apply in relation to any deputy as they apply in relation to the member for whom he is appointed to act as a deputy.
