Review of Political Proportionality


As a result of a change in the division of members into political groups, the Council reviewed the proportional political allocation of places on committees and considered revised schemes of proportionality.


The possible schemes of proportionality had been discussed informally with the Group leaders and 2 options which had been formulated taking into account the some of the preferences expressed.  Both of the schemes achieved the required balance between the five political groups on the Council.




(i)           adopt the revised scheme of proportionality at Option B, as set out in Annex A to the agenda report; and


(ii)          note that the revised memberships of the standing committees of the Council be agreed by the Interim Deputy Chief Executive on the nomination of the Group Leaders.
