We had our final O&S Committee meeting on Tuesday evening. It was a fantastic meeting with many reports being submitted and approved. We had a wonderful report from representatives from the UK Youth Parliament about the image of young people. They presented a powerful report with pithy recommendations - which we as a committee adopted and enhanced.
Our report on Town & Parish Councils was accepted not only unanimously by the Committee but also by ChALC - the representative body for our Town & Parish Councils. Then it was a report on our Citizens Advice Bureau - again unanimously accepted.
Our final item of business was our annual report. I took the opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in Scrutiny over the last 3 years. I also used the opportunity to explain in straight forward terms where things could have gone better! If you want to see any of this - the webcast of O&S is available on CWaC's website. My 10 minute straight talking starts at 1hr06 minutes!
