RE: Committee Structures
4 Scrutiny Panels (OSCs) that mirror cabinet portfolios together with LSP thematic partnerships and the LAA.
They meet monthly 2 at 2pm and 2 at 5pm.
Membership varies between 9 and 17 and they are politically balanced one chaired by opposition - 2 deputy chairs from opposition.
Chairs paid approx £10k and Deputies approx £2k.
Format very much based on select cttees, very short agendas, members can get very involved, built up good reputation, in depth reports well received but policy reviews can take a long time.
