Options for the Public Transport Liaison Committee pdf icon PDF 88 KB


Four options for the consideration of the Working Party were presented by the

Interim Scrutiny Manager.


The Chair reported he had discussed the options with the Chair of the

Sustainable Development Committee and concluded options that did not

sustain the valuable public transport liaison function could not be

recommended. He said an opportunity now existed to formalise support

arrangements and provide a direct link between scrutiny, the executive, TfL

and transport providers. 


The Chair suggested a recommendation to Council of Option B, modified to

include membership on the liaison committee of the Chair and Vice-Chair of

Sustainable Development Committee and the Cabinet Member with

responsibility for Transport.


The Working Party agreed the Terms of Reference should be as set out in

paragraph 4.2 of the report. The Chair added that the impact on the wider

balance of responsibilities between Select Committees needed to be reviewed

and the Interim Head of Scrutiny should draw up a short report for

consideration at the next meeting of the Working Party.




(1) the Council be recommended to approve Public Transport Liaison as a

body of the Council with the terms of reference set out in paragraph 4.2;


(2) the Chair and Vice-Chair of Sustainable Development Committee and the

Cabinet Member with responsibility for Transport be nominated as members

and all other Councillors should have the right to attend and ask questions;


(3) the new committee should meet four times a year.
