Section 10: Application to the City of London

65.The Local Government Act 2000 does not provide for the Common Council of the City of London (the local authority for the City) to establish an overview and scrutiny committee. This section makes it possible for the Common Council of the City of London to set up a committee which mirrors the functions of the overview and scrutiny committees in relation to the scrutiny of the NHS. Subsection (2) applies sections 7(3) to (5) and 8 and 9 and Schedule 1 to the committee that is set up. Subsection (3) of section 10 applies the provisions of section 21 of the Local Government Act 2000 (overview and scrutiny committees) to a scrutiny committee established by the Common Council, with modifications to reflect the fact that the Common Council will not have an executive under Part 2 of that Act.
