Scrutiny Improvement at Brent Council
The forthcoming Full Council meeting has a short review of Scrutiny arrangements as part of its business. I dare say this will be widely overlooked as the Budget is debated the same night. The conclusion appears to be that the new dual committee structure will be rather more effective than the single committee structure rammed through by Cllr Butt in 2014. However, the short review available doesn't seem able to find any examples where the Scrutiny process has actually produced better outcomes.
