Section 65 – Making information available to overview and scrutiny Committees

369.Section 22(10) of the 2000 Act enables the Welsh Ministers to make regulations requiring the provision of information to the public or members of a principal council about decisions of the executive of that council.

370.Section 65 amends section 22(10) so that regulations may also require that overview and scrutiny committees and their sub-committees are given information about such decisions. Greater knowledge of the decision the executive intends to make will enable these committees to better plan their work.
