45 BYELAWS IN RELATION TO SKINS PDF 223 KB
To approve and introduce new byelaws in relation to skins.
Council considered a report by the Cabinet Member Housing, Regulatory Services and Community to approve and introduce new byelaws in relation to skins. The Cabinet Member Housing, Regulatory Services and Community moved and introduced the report and the recommendations.
Councillor Gemma Davies seconded the recommendations in the report.
Council debated the report and byelaws relating to skins procedures. During the course of the debate the following actions were raised:
· To feed back to Licensing, concern regarding the use of the wording so far as appropriate in the policy with regard to cleansing of instruments, materials and equipment. The wording was felt to be ambiguous and insufficiently explicit to enable the byelaws to achieve effective enforcement; and
· To ask the Corporate Director to consider what policy documents existed to guide Skins practitioners with regard to informing clients, in advance of treatments, of the likely health implications.
The recommendations in the report were put to the vote and were carried by a simple majority.
a) The new byelaws contained in appendix 1 to be adopted under Section 14(7) and 15(7) of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982, subject to approval of the Secretary of State.
b) The existing byelaws made under the Hereford City Act 1985 are revoked.
