Inquoracy

Minutes:

          Jill Coule, Monitoring Officer, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, informed Members that the quorum for the Overview and Scrutiny Committee was two thirds of the membership, which required 14 out of the 20 Members to be in attendance.

 

          As there were only 13 Members in attendance and the agenda included a number of items which required formal decisions the Monitoring Officer advised the Committee that the meeting should not proceed.

 

          Members expressed their concern with regards to the high quorum threshold for the Committee, in particular noting that it was limiting the work and role of the Committee.
