Apologies for Absence

Meeting: 02/12/2019 - Overview and Scrutiny Board (Item 58)

Apologies for Absence and Named Substitutes


Apologies were received from Cllr. P. McDonald with Cllr S. Douglas attending as his substitute.


Members discussed the number of substitutes allowed over each municipal year at Overview and Scrutiny Board. Members requested that the number of substitutes was re-visited and perhaps increased from the number permitted, which was two. Officers explained that this number was determined as part of The Council’s Constitution and therefore this request would need to be taken to the Constitution Review Working Group to be considered there.


RECOMMENDED that the Constitution Review Working Group would review the number of substitutions that are permitted by each Member during a municipal year for Overview and Scrutiny Board.
