Change section on warning about laser tube warning. Add note that there was some incorrect information that we based our discussion on.

also mention incorrect information in discussion of MK representing the space

MK and the committee agreed that the minutes of committee meeting 12/10/2016 (as amended) now have sufficient context and recognise that the incorrect information has been highlighted.

This discussion is concerning private communication between the committee and MK.

MK and the committee agreed this was not a section 20 complaint.

Mitch was invited to comment – he says that's fine
LEM, SMM we should do it

broad discussion was had on items 4 and 6 and these or others will me raised at a future committee meeting if anyone considers it appropriate.

They should be agenda items before the meeting
