Speaking at Full Council

There is a Public Question Time at the start of Full Council meetings, apart from the Annual Meeting in May.

To ask a question or make a statement, you will need to add your name and address to a list before you enter the meeting.

We will pass the list to the Mayor, who will call you forward during the Public Question Time. You can ask your question or make your statement once you have confirmed your name and address to the Mayor.

You have up to two minutes to ask your question or make a statement. Your question or statement must relate to the work of the Council or affect the city. If it doesn’t, the Mayor will disallow it.

The relevant member of the Council will then respond to your question or statement.
