What is “a relevant matter”?
A relevant matter is one which relates to:
- The initiation, development or modification of any public policy or of any public programme;
- The preparation or amendment of any law (including secondary legislation such as statutory instruments and bye-laws);
- The award of any grant, loan or other financial support, contract or other agreement, or of any licence or other authorisation involving public funds;
apart from the implementation of any such policy, programme, enactment or award or any matter of a technical nature only.
