Agenda item

Minutes:

Council was requested to consider the consequential impact of political proportionality on seats on the Council’s Committees for the remainder of the 2017/18 local government year.

 

With regard to the Council’s overall number of committee places, a motion was moved and seconded to reduce the number from 98 to 82. An amendment was also moved and seconded to retain the status quo at 98 overall committee places but having been put to the vote, the amendment duly fell.

 

The meeting was adjourned at 7.55 p.m. and reconvened at 8.06 p.m. 

 

At this point in the proceedings, a list of proposed committee appointments for Chairmen, Vice Chairmen and membership seats (for all the 82 committee places) was moved and seconded and circulated to all present at the meeting.  A profile outlining the new Cabinet formation and Portfolio Holder positions was also circulated for information.

 

An amendment was moved and seconded to take each committee nomination individually rather than en bloc as per the circulated list but having been put to the vote, the amendment duly fell.

 

RESOLVED that

a)    it be confirmed that the Council has 82 overall committee places as outlined in Fig 1.2 contained in the report;

 

b)    the politically proportional allocation of seats on each of the Council’s committees, be noted;

 

c)    as a result of (a) and (b) above, the following appointments for Chairmen, Vice Chairmen and membership seats be approved:-
