(2) Where during his or her term of office a member is appointed to be the chair, his tenure of office as such a member shall terminate when his appointment as chair takes effect.

(3) If a member fails to attend two consecutive meetings of the Council the National Assembly shall forthwith terminate that member’s tenure of office by giving him or her notice in writing to that effect, unless it is satisfied that—

(a)the absence was due to a reasonable cause; and

(b)the person in question will be able to attend meetings of the Council within a reasonable period.

(4) Where a person has been appointed to be a member, and—

(a)he or she becomes disqualified for appointment under regulation 5; or

(b)it comes to the notice of the National Assembly that at the time of his or her appointment he or she was so disqualified,

the National Assembly shall forthwith terminate his or her tenure of office by giving him or her notice in writing to that effect.

(5) (a) Where the National Assembly is of the reasonable opinion that it is not in the interests of the Council that a member should continue to hold office, it may forthwith terminate his or her tenure of office by giving him or her notice in writing to that effect.

(b)Any notice under sub-paragraph (a) above shall state the reason or reasons why it is given.

(6) If the Assembly is of the opinion that a member:

(a)has failed to comply with any requirement imposed by or under regulation 10 (disability of members in proceedings on account of their interests) in relation to an interest of that member;

(b)has failed, in a material respect, to comply with any requirement imposed by the Assembly under regulation 3(4); or

(c)who was a lay person when appointed is no longer a lay person;

it may forthwith terminate that person’s tenure of office by giving him or her notice in writing to that effect, except that no person’s tenure of office shall be terminated under sub-paragraph (a) unless at the time of the failure in question there had been issued guidance of the Assembly to the Council about relevant interests under regulation 10.
