To Receive Notification Of Cabinet And Cabinet Adviser Appointments, The Leader's Scheme Of Delegation For The Discharge Of Executive Functions, And Shadow Cabinet Appointments For The Ensuing Year

Background report of the Chief Executive outlining the constitutional requirements regarding the discharge of Executive functions.

Minutes:

 

RESOLVED: On the motion of Councillor Peter Rippon, seconded by Councillor David Baker, that the City Council:-

 

 

 

(a)     notes the Leader’s notification of the appointment of a Deputy Leader and Cabinet Members, including their portfolio areas of responsibility, and the appointment of Cabinet Members to serve on the Cabinet Highways Committee (including substitutes), and approves the appointment of Cabinet Advisers, all as detailed in the schedule circulated at the meeting;

 

(b)     notes that the Leader’s scheme of delegation currently in operation for the discharge of Executive functions will continue, other than in relation to the names and remits of some of the Portfolios of the Cabinet Members, which will be required to be changed to reflect the appointments now made by the Leader, and these will be published and circulated to all Members in the near future;

 

(c)      notes the main opposition group’s notification of the Leader of the Opposition and approves the appointment of Shadow Cabinet Members, as detailed in the schedule circulated at the meeting; and

 

(d)     notes that the effect of these appointments upon the Special Responsibility Allowance element of the budget for Members’ Allowances is an increase of £9,084 over a full year (excluding NI costs, as applicable), due to the payment of an extra Band A allowance for an additional Cabinet Member from the number appointed in 2015/16, with that cost to be met from within the cash limit for the Members’ Allowances budget through management actions to contain expenditure over the course of the year.

 

 

 

(Note: Councillors Pauline Andrews, Jack Clarkson, Keith Davis and John Booker voted against paragraph (d) of the Motion and asked for this to be recorded.)
