Declarations of interest
IRP members are asked to declare publicly any private interests - both financial and non-financial - which may, or may be perceived to, conflict with public duties.
When deciding what to declare, members should consider whether a member of the public, acting reasonably, would consider that the interest in question might influence their words, actions or decisions.
The members’ declarations form a register of members’ interests, which is maintained by the IRP secretariat.
