Joint Scrutiny Committee

Purpose of committee

A Joint Scrutiny Committee can be formed to undertake work of a cross cutting nature within the terms of reference of both scrutiny committees and where it is felt that better outcomes will be achieved by the committees working together.  A Joint Scrutiny Committee will be formed on a task and finish basis to undertake a review in a specific area.


A Joint Scrutiny Committee will be comprised of either the entire membership of the two scrutiny committees (a total membership of 20) or a number drawn from the two scrutiny committees, as agreed by the scrutiny committee chairmen and appointed on a politically proportionate basis after consultation with group leaders.
