Scrutiny Task Groups: Substitute Members

24 July 2014


A report presented to council provided details of a proposal originally moved at full council on 24 April 2014 regarding the introduction of substitute members on scrutiny task groups.

Councillor Shaw, supported by Councillor Murrary, moved the proposal set out in paragraph 5.1 of the report:

  • To agree there should be provision for named substitutes for members of all scrutiny task groups and;
  • That council rule 18 should be changed to include an additional clause as follows:

    18.10 - In the case of scrutiny task groups (which are not formal committees or sub committees of the council), substitutes are permitted to the extent there may be one named substitute for each task group member who must be appointed when the task group is established.

On being put to the vote, the motion was lost.
