RE: Analysis of Scrutiny Function
Hi, Ed Hammond is probably your man for this, but off the top of my head there is the earlier reveiw done by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, titled 'the Development of OSC in Local Government'. This was published in 2002/3. Then more lately there is Scrutiny: Theory and Practice in Local Government, edited by Andrew Coulson. This was published in 2010 and along the way there is the CfPs document 'Practice, progress and potential' an asssessment. This was published I think around 2005. Again Ed should be able to expand. Hope this helps.
