Perhaps annoyingly, the answer to this has to be "yes" - if something related 
to structural issues, how something is to be done, etc, is decided on, it 
needs to be minuted *somewhere*, even if that is in the future, and in the 
meantime, because of exigencies of time, etc, the new arrangements are put 
into operation (hence no need for paralysis).  Are you seriously suggesting 
that a committee just does what it likes, without telling anyone else what is 
going on, providing a note of record, etc?  And you have a very odd notion of 
government procedures if you think that is what happens there, any other 
impressions to the contrary.
