Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott I apologise for missing the first session on the report—I am a bit off the pace on it. If SDS’s role is just to administer a scheme, that raises the fundamental point that that could be done in a different way rather more effectively. The feedback that I get from my part of the world is that SDS is ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott When exactly will the issue come back to the committee? That might be an unfair question. Is it going to be October?



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott To make sure that the situation changes over the next year, there might be some point to the committee asking COSLA how widely this is being dealt with at council level. Based on paragraph 26 of your report, there is an awful lot more to do quickly to ensure that senior elected members know what is ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott On that same point, is it not the case that one issue that councillors are getting a lot of information on, both from their council and the NHS, is the integration of social care.

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott There is something way wrong there, is there not?



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott As Mary Scanlon rightly said, we are four years into a 10-year strategy, but 23 councils are not considering the matter regularly.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott Absolutely. In a year’s time, will the other 23 councils that do not provide information to their elected members do so? What will make them do that?



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott I will pick up the Accounts Commission’s earlier evidence about leadership and the understandable points that Douglas Sinclair made about the corporate responsibilities of senior elected members and senior council officials. If I read paragraph 26 right, it says that, over the past couple of years, ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott So that is a challenge.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Tavish Scott That is a fair point. Do we know how many of the 32 councils have long-term financial plans?
