Changes to how members of the public can put questions to the board 

The FSA Board welcomes questions on the discussions held at each of its meetings. Previously, questions have been submitted during the course of a Board meeting, and answered at the end.  We have found that this means public comment relevant to specific papers is only raised after the discussion. In addition, providing full answers to the wide range of issues raised is constrained by time and our attention being directed to the debate in the room. We are therefore improving the process for public questions. 

From now on, questions can be submitted once all Board papers have been published. The window for submitting questions opens on the Monday morning before a Board meeting (for this meeting, that is 18 June) and closes at noon on the day before the Board meeting (19 June). All questions will be read out at the start of the meeting. As appropriate, they will be answered by the Board and Executive as part of the relevant discussions or by correspondence and published on our website within 14 working days.

Please follow instructions on our website to submit your questions to: in advance of the meeting.
There is also an opportunity for those attending in person to ask questions, this will continue to happen at the end of the Board meeting.
