Personally, I tend to agree.  There is a possibility of being too sensitive.

In any event, the first rule is to at least flag a potential conflict.  I
have obviously done that.

If that raises no significant concerns or issues, I am happy to be guided by
other councillors and potentially continue to chair Council discussions on
That said, the sense I am getting is that we do not want to spend much (if
any) time on this whilst the RFI process remains open.

Regarding the detail point, good catch, it would have been more accurate to
say "... I have systems, process and related expertise which may be useful
in the design, development or provision of a URS system  ..."

How can you say "the provision of URS services is an area where I have some
systems, process and related expertise" when the URS doesn't yet exist?  

In my view, we can go overboard with regard to conflicts.  Even your
suggestion of Mason to lead the conversation can be open to criticism.
After all, why wouldn't a registry want a high price on the URS?

See how it can go?

At this point I suggest you keep your seat for this until you prove

My 2 cents.
