  1. A register will be maintained by every Director detailing all offers of gifts or hospitality offered to employees in their department. The following information will be recorded, based on information reported by employees:-
  • the person or body making the offer;
  • the member of staff to whom the offer was made;
  • the gift or hospitality offered;
  • the circumstances in which the offer was made;
  • the action taken by the member of staff concerned; and
  • the action taken (if any) by the Directors (or in the case of Directors, the Chief Executive).

A standard form is available on the Register of Interests page.

A similar register will be maintained by the Chief Executive in relation to Directors.

Where a suspected breach has been reported a formal investigation will be undertaken and recorded.
