RE: Interim Scrutiny Arrangements
When we've changed, we've just plodded on with the old structures up to the point when full council officially decide somethign new. This was even the case several years ago when the committees were patently no longer relevant, but political arguments delayed agreement on alternatives.
We simply made the best of it for a little while. We even simply cancelled the odd meeting where we couldn't wedge work in to into a pointless committee's redundant terms of reference. Would it be too much of a problem to keep the old structure in name, but simply cancel any meetings due between now and the council meeting? Surely that's only going to be a month or so. Only a problem if there's a call in or similar, but on second thoughts perhaps where things have got "political", that's exactly what would happen!
