If I put in a question do I actually have to be there?
No. If you cannot attend the answer to your question will be published with the minutes of the meeting and will be available on the website. If the meeting was webcast then the answer will also be available with the archive for that meeting. If you do attend you will be invited to sit at the place reserved for you while your question is dealt with.
