Protocol on Recording of Meetings of Kettering Borough Council

After the Meeting

Anyone who films, records or photographs a meeting of the Council or its Committees and publishes the film, recording or report must respect the law. They will be responsible for any allegations of breaches of the law which may result from their use of recorded material and any subsequent report. This will include the Human Rights Act, the Data Protection Act and the laws of libel and defamation.


The proper record of the meeting is the formal minutes for that relevant meeting, and nothing else.
