Section 66 – Provision in standing orders about appointment of persons to chair committeesSection 67 – When appointments to be made by committeeSection 68 – When appointments to be made by non-executive groupSection 69 – How appointments to be made in other cases

80.These sections require a local authority to make provision in its standing orders for the appointment of chairs for the authority’s overview and scrutiny committees (the appointment procedure”). The sections also set out who will appoint the chairs, a decision which depends on the number of political groups represented on that authority and the composition of the authority’s executive. The committees themselves will appoint their chairs in the circumstances described in section 67; the non-executive political group will do so if the circumstances are those in section 68. Section 69 introduces the arrangements to apply in other cases.
