The Committee considered a report from the Monitoring Officer with regard to the progress of current complaints and any other code of conduct complaints received since the last report in July 2020.  At this point the Chair requested that Members indicate if they wished to raise any questions in relation to the exempt appendix as the Committee would need to exclude the press and public in that eventuality.  There being no request to ask questions, the Chair confirmed that the report was for noting.
