The Hearing sessions on Wednesday18 May and Monday 23 May will start at 10am, resume at 2pm and the Commissioner aims to deliver 2 x 2 hour long sessions, with no more than an additional 15 minutes but only if this would enable the finish of discussion on a topic.  As usual, participants are asked to join the session at least 15 minutes before it commences.

There will be a follow-on session starting at 10am on Thursday 19th May 2022 to consider issue 1 of Topic 16, namely settlement hierarchy (questions 1 to 7).  Invites for that follow-on session will issue in due course.  

If discussion of issues 2 and/or 3 of topic 16 are not concluded on Wednesday 18 May, they will resume after issue 1 has been considered at that follow-on session.  If required, the follow-on session on Thursday 20 will continue in the afternoon.

The Hearings Programme already provides for possible follow-on days on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 May if required.  Therefore, if discussion on the entirety of Topic 16 has not been concluded on the afternoon of Thursday 19 May, it will resume at 10am on Thursday 26 May.
