RE: Cabinet giving reasons for rejection of Scrutiny recommendations
In Tameside once a Scrutiny Review Report has been presented to Council, an Executive Response form is sent to the executive member and their chief officer. This eform contains certain headings against each recommendation and requires the executive member to indicate whether the recommendation is accepted or rejected and give the reasons. Examples of completed forms can be viewed on the Tameside scrutiny web site.
The Executive Response is very useful as the basis for (you have guessed it) a good follow up to see what the out comes are of the report.
