Procedure of Meeting

Amendments will be taken in the order they are submitted and one at a time

unless agreed otherwise. Although some of the amendments may be

interdependent in that they relate to combined savings and/or growth, Overview and Scrutiny will want the opportunity to comment on the merits or otherwise of each although with the ability to acknowledge their dependency if appropriate.


A formal view may also need to have been taken on advice ahead of the

meeting relating to Overview and Scrutiny’s ability to consider an amendment

should it be on a matter which is regarded as falling outside its remit; and

the status of anyone presenting the amendment should they also be a member of the Management Committee.


The running order of speakers on each will be:

·         Respective group leader/spokesman/individual to present the circulated amendment explaining the purpose, implications, intended outcome and link to the Business Plan;

·         The Leader of the Council and/or responsible Cabinet Member(s) to respond;

·         Corporate Leadership Team to comment (if appropriate);

·         Management Committee Members to ask questions of the proposer(s) and respondent(s) in order to gain sufficient evidence to take a view;

·         Clarification from statutory officers and other relevant directors (if necessary);

·         Contribution from any other Members (if invited);

·         Chairman to sum up and seek consensus view of the Committee


The consensus views of the Committee (and not of individual members) will

form part of the minutes of the meeting for report to Council on 25 February
