That the report be authorised for publication.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

MS DUNDAS: I move:

That the report be noted.

For the information of members, this report arose from the first report of the Select Committee on Privileges relating to some inappropriate action that was taken by staff in this building. The Standing Committee on Administration and Procedure was tasked with establishing whether or not there should be a code of conduct for members and/or a code of conduct for staff that work in this building. The committee examined a report that was prepared during the time of the Fourth Assembly that contained a recommendation that there be a code of conduct for members.
