To undertake the statutory scrutiny role of executive decision-making by the London Borough of Hillingdon, and in particular to review decisions made by the Cabinet prior to this meeting. Members should consider any other decision taken by a Cabinet Member(s) or key decision taken by an Officer published in the five working days before this meeting.



Members gave consideration to the Cabinet reports of the 14 March 2019 meeting and the decisions made by Cabinet on them earlier that evening. On the budget monitoring report the Committee requested more information on how the Council was progressing with the recruitment of permanent staff, as opposed to the use of agency staff, in the area of children’s social work. The Committee welcomed the report on the new single integrated therapies contract for children and sought clarification on the key performance indicators to be used to monitor its success.


RESOLVED: – That the decisions made by the Cabinet at their meeting on 14 March 2019 be endorsed and that no call-in be made.
