Date of the Next Meeting

To approve a change in the date of the next meeting of the Scrutiny Co-ordination Committee from Thursday, 20 May to Thursday, 27 May 2021.

 

The change in date has been proposed  is to reflect the already agreed rescheduling of the Annual Council Meeting that had also been moved forward by a week. 

 

As the meeting of the Committee was phased to consider the remit of scrutiny committees in the light of the agreed cabinet portfolios made at the Annual Meeting, the proposed alteration of the date is necessary so that the committee will have the information it needs to complete this work.
