The law states that we cannot make key decisions until certain conditions have been fulfilled. One of these conditions is that 28 days’ notice has been given of the intention to take the decision.
When 28 clear days’ notice cannot be given, the Chief Executive must give written notice to the chairperson and group spokespeople of the relevant overview and scrutiny committee. If there is no such person, notice must be given to each member of the committee.
Details of any such notices are included below.
