|Potential Extension to Leith 11 Dec 2014||The City of Edinburgh Council - Over the next decade Edinburgh’s population is expected to increase more than anywhere else in Scotland. As part of the Council’s commitment to work towards a thriving, sustainable Edinburgh, there is a strong focus on establishing an integrated public transport network for the Capital, alongside encouraging and promoting active travel and catering to the needs of all road users. A sustainable approach to planning public transport investment is essential. The case for trams should be considered as part of this broader sustainable approach by virtue of the potential to connect different parts of the city and to move large quantities of people, whilst enhancing the city’s environment. This report sets out the context for possible future investment in tram taking account of integration with other major projects including the St James Quarter redevelopment and the Leith Programme. Authority from the Council is sought for officers to prepare a report back to Council in late spring 2015 would include an updated tram business and financial case including cost estimates, an integrated design and outline delivery programme.||Edinburgh|

There is only one Rule.
It allows people to speak as individuals, and to express views that may not be those of their organizations, and therefore it encourages free discussion. People usually feel more relaxed if they don't have to worry about their reputation or the implications if they are publicly quoted.
Chatham House can take disciplinary action against one of its members who breaks the Rule. Not all organizations that use the Rule have sanctions. The Rule then depends for its success on being seen as morally binding.
It is widely used by local government and commercial organizations as well as research organizations
It is important to think about the spirit of the Rule. For example, sometimes speakers need to be named when publicizing the meeting. The Rule is more about the dissemination of the information after the event - nothing should be done to identify, either explicitly or implicitly, who said what.
