RE: Scrutiny Committee Chairs
Never be afraid to ask here.
We have five scrutiny committees two of which are chaired by opposition party members and three by majority party members. The Chairman of the Scrutiny Commission, consisting of the Chairmen and Deputy-Chairman of the scrutiny committees, is an opposition party member. All this is set down in our constitution.
All the Deputy Chairmen are majority party members.
I am sure you'll get a lot of variations on this from other authorities on here. I feel that it is good practice for opposition members to be involved to a greater extent rather than lesser.
Give me a shout if I can be of any help.
