Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 59 – Scrutinising designated personsSection 60 – Notifying designated persons of report or recommendations

74.These sections strengthen the position of overview and scrutiny committees (and by extension, JOSCs) by building on the existing power to make reports and recommendations in section 21(2)(e) of the 2000 Act, so that committees are required to scrutinise and report on matters which relate to a “designated person” (see section 61). The other main changes are new powers for a committee: to require information to be given (a requirement that must be complied with); to send a copy of a report or recommendations to a designated person; and to request such a person to have regard to the report or recommendations.
