We met on 25 July and agreed to suggest the following additions to the current format:a) Deleted items be re-scored “0” and deleted immediately following each meeting;
    b) “Parked
    ” items (ie those which currently could not be taken forward) be re-scored “1”;
    c) The whole Action Report be transferred to a spreadsheet, so that entries could be more easily re-ordered following each meeting via the final (priority order) column;
    d) A new column on the left be added, containing a simple alphabetical sequence (A to Z), to be re-entered following each meeting so as to ease identification during meetings when Members wished to discuss specific Actions;
