Corporate, Community and External Affairs Scrutiny Panel

From May 2011 the Internal and External Scrutiny Commissions carried out the Scrutiny Function of the Council.

This Panel exercised the "call in" and pre-scrutiny functions as part of the Council's scrutiny arrangements by considering the decisions taken by the Cabinet along with any representations that had been made by non-executive members on these decisions and identified whether any of them should be referred back to the Cabinet or on to the Council.
