Constitutional Matters - Children, Young People & Skills Committee

Report of the Executive Director for Families, Children and Learning (copy attached)

Decision:

RESOLVED:

 

1)    That the terms of reference, as set out in Appendix A be noted;

 

2)    That an Urgency Sub-Committee consisting of the Chair of the Committee and two other Members (nominated in accordance with the scheme for the allocation of seats for committees) be established and to exercise its powers in relation to matters of urgency, on which it is necessary to make a decision before the next ordinary meeting of the Committee be approved.

Minutes:

7.1         The Committee considered a report of the Monitoring Officer that provided information on the committee’s terms of reference and related matters including the appointment of its urgency sub-committee.

 

7.2         Councillor Brown noted an error regarding the age of which the Committee served children. It was requested that the age be recognised as 25 not 19.

 

7.3         Karen James noted a discrepancy regarding the lack of representation of the co-optee’s role at sub-committee.

 

7.4         The Managing Principle referred Ms James to the legal implications that clarified the role of voting co-optees. It was stated that voting co-optees were limited to voting on educational matters only and that ratifying their inclusion to sub-committees at a constitutional level could be an issue since, on balance, it was unlikely that an urgent matter restricted solely to education would be called and that the ensuing vote by external figures could be problematic.

 

7.5         RESOLVED:

 

1)    That the terms of reference, as set out in Appendix A be noted;

 

2) That an Urgency Sub-Committee consisting of the Chair of the Committee and two other Members (nominated in accordance with the scheme for the allocation of seats for committees) be established and to exercise its powers in relation to matters of urgency, on which it is necessary to make a decision before the next ordinary meeting of the Committee be approved.
