Executive Scrutiny Committee

Purpose of committee

The Executive Scrutiny Committee is responsible for the post executive-decision scrutiny role. Its primary role is to closely examine key decisions taken by Cabinet, individual Cabinet Members and officers before they have been implemented. The Executive Scrutiny Committee meets immediately after the Cabinet meeting and a majority of the Committee can ‘call-in’ a decision. If not satisfied with the further information provided to them, they can ask the Cabinet or Cabinet Member to reconsider it and this is called a “scrutiny call-in”.
