Councillors assured that cuts will be properly scrutinised
COUNCIL leader Chris Shaw has assured councillors that any proposed future cuts will be subject to proper scrutiny.
He was responding to a question from Conservative group leader Keith Brookes at last week’s full council meeting.
Councillor Shaw said: “Of course I can give that assurance. In November and January we had the scrutiny working groups and scrutiny panels to discuss the budget and any reductions in services. Obviously Councillor Brookes must have missed those because otherwise he would have realised that we have already done scrutiny.
“We have also had members briefings for those members that bothered to turn up.”

An unimpressed Councillor Brookes replied: “I will treat the answer with the contempt it deserves.”
