      Access for government representatives to Assembly committees
      (Decision of the Standing Committee of 25 November 1987 See Progress Report of the Bureau and the Standing Committee,
Doc. 5829, paragraph 20, of which the Assembly took note on 25 January
1988.)
      a. Permanent Representatives/Ministers’ Deputies (including chargés d’affaires duly notified to the Secretary General) may attend plenary meetings of committees, with the right to speak.
      b. Should a Permanent Representative be unable to attend, and provided that the competent committee has been previously informed, this right of access shall be extended to his first deputy, the right to speak remaining subject to the provisions contained in paragraph 2 of Rule 50 (now Rule 57.2. ) of the Rules of Procedure of the Assembly.
      c. Every committee shall reserve the right to sit, in specific cases, without the presence of any person not a member of the Assembly or its Secretariat.
      d. Wherever possible, Permanent Representatives should give the chairmen of the committees concerned advance notice, through the Secretariat, of their intention to attend a meeting or to have their place taken by their deputy.
      e. The attendance of other national officials of member states at committee meetings shall be governed by the provisions of paragraph 2 of Rule 50 (now Rule 57.2. ) in the case of “deputies” within the meaning of that rule, or, otherwise, by the general rule contained in the third sub-paragraph of paragraph 16 of Rule 45 (now Rule 48.7. ).
      f. In return, the Assembly expects meetings of the Committee of Ministers/Ministers’ Deputies, as well as Conferences of Specialised Ministers, to be more systematically open to attendance by members of the Assembly (in particular, committee chairmen or rapporteurs), and especially when its adopted texts come up for detailed discussion.
