- Directors' Responsibility Statement
The Board holds regular meetings and receives accurate and timely information. During 2012, the Board held seven formal Board meetings and a number of other meetings and teleconferences to discuss and review progress on issues affecting the Group during the year.
The table above shows the number of meetings individual directors could have attended (taking account of eligibility, appointment and retirement dates during the year) and their actual attendance. For the Committees, only the attendance of members of that committee is shown, although other directors, where appropriate, have often also attended at the invitation of the
chairman of the committee.
If a director is unable to attend a meeting, they are nevertheless provided with all the papers and information relating to the meeting and are able to discuss the issues arising directly with the Chairman and executive directors.
The non-executive directors also met twice during the year without the executive directors present.
