New Committee system meeting
I went to a Councillors meeting on the new committee sytem proposals. It seems like there is still a lot of work that has to be done to come up with final proposals, but I know much better how the system would operate, and it was useful and reassuring to hear from a number of experienced Councillors. I'm not sure when the public consultation will be, but hope to keep you posted. I imagine the notes will be in the Constitution, Ethics and Probity Committee meeting. Labour Councillors were clear in their desire to ensure the public could speak at meetings, which I feel is very important.
