RE: Town Hall meetings
Here scrutiny in Hounslow has successfully organised and hosted 2 Leader's Question Time sessions for the public. Both were well attended by members of the public and chaired by the Chairman of OSC. As per the BBC Q Time event, the Panel did not have sight of the questions, these came into the scrutiny office and even the Chair of OSC only saw these a few hours before the event started.
Call me if you would like more detail.
