Paragraph 12: Delegation of functions
121.Sub-paragraph (1) enables the Office to delegate functions to members, employees or committees. With the exception of the Budget Responsibility Committee, committees may delegate functions to sub-committees. Sub-paragraph (5) provides that a delegation does not prevent the Office or one of its committees from carrying out a delegated function itself.
122.Sub-paragraphs (3) and (4) provide that the functions at section 4(3) and (4) (the “core functions”) must be exercised by the Budget Responsibility Committee and may not be delegated.
