Board Members Declarations of Interest
All members of London TravelWatch are, on appointment, required to make declarations of interest to any shareholdings that might be regarded as creating a financial conflict with their membership of London TravelWatch (as of 25.1.2011 no such declarations have been made in respect of current members).
The Board decided (as of 1 January 2006) that members should declare other interests that could possibly be deemed to create a conflict with their membership of London TravelWatch. Some such conflicts are likely to be more theoretical than real, but for the sake of openness and transparency they are listed below.
Occasionally, a member may find that he or she has a very specific conflict of interest relating to a personal interest in a proposal (eg the location of a bus stop). In such circumstances, the member concerned is required to make a declaration at the start of the meeting at which the item is being discussed.
Members sit on the London TravelWatch board in their individual capacities and do not represent any groups or organisations in which they have an interest.
