Board of Deputies to vote on live-streaming

By Marcus Dysch, March 15, 2013

A decision whether to continue live streaming of Board of Deputies meetings will be taken next month.

There has been confusion among deputies about the broadcasting process following its introduction last year.

Deputies who do not want to be shown online have the option of speaking at a mic which cannot be heard outside the meeting room and from a position which is hidden from the camera.

The broadcasts have been part of a trial, but Board treasurer Laurence Brass said the finance and organisation committee had “unanimously recommended” that it should become permanent.

Deputies will vote on the recommendation at April’s plenary meeting.
