The 7 day timeline applies to papers for consideration in separate
agenda items, as well as notice of significant motions.  ie the papers
are provided at the time the agenda is issued.

The approach taken here is that members of the Council should have time
to read a paper and discuss it with their constituencies prior to a
Council call.  We would normally probably spend 30 minutes or so
discussing a significant paper.
