Appointment of Chairs, members and substitutes to sub-committees

Sub-Committee (A)

Sub-Committee (B)

Sub-Committee (C)

Minutes:

At the Annual meeting of Full Council on 22 May 2015 no appointments had been made to the places on committees allocated to the opposition groups. The Committee was therefore only able to appoint opposition members to the sub-committees subject to their appointment to the Alcohol and Entertainment Licensing Committee by Full Council.

 

The Chair proposed memberships for the sub-committees and the committee noted Councillor Davidson’s concern at the Brent Conservatives group member being an alternate on Sub-Committee (B) where the Conservative group was full member as he felt the two groups were quite separate. Additionally he expressed a preference to be a member of Sub-Committee (A) which, in the past, tended to meet in the evenings. The committee noted that any further changes to the sub-committee membership would have to be agreed by this committee.

 

RESOLVED:-

 

that the following appointments to the sub-committees be made:
