Question time

Question time gives you the opportunity to come and put questions to the full Council, the Executive, Portfolio Holders, Policy Development and Scrutiny (PDS) committees or other committees about their activities and decisions. All these meetings set aside a slot at the start to answer your questions. Questions are dealt with in the order they are received and if you attend the meeting, you will usually be able to ask a supplementary question.


Questions (one per person):

Questions at Policy Development and Scrutiny (PDS) committees are usually answered by Portfolio Holders as they are politically accountable for the Council’s services.

Next steps

Send your question to the Democratic Services Team. If you think a particular Portfolio Holder should answer your question, please tell us. Please let us know if you will attend the meeting to put your question, or if you require a written reply instead
