Issue and representation

One rapporteur (R) is appointed to lead on each major policy issue, to draft position papers when required and act as a spokesperson on the issue. For most active policy groups there is also one support (S) who may deputise for the rapporteur, and one or more observers (O). Council has a variety of voting rules for its different groups. PDP after the issue name means there is an active policy development process.
