- The Chair may disallow a question if it is phrased as a statement, rather than a question; or if it relates to matters outside the duties, functions and powers of Council; or if it is defamatory, abusive or offensive; or if it deals with a subject matter already answered; or if it is aimed at embarrassing a Councillor or member of Council staff.
- Public Question Time is not an opportunity for debating a response to a question or making any other type of public statement.
More detailed information about the Question Time Rules is included in clause 66 of the Governance Local Law and the Question Time Procedure.
