Constitutional Issues Committee (Liverpool City Council) 6th January 2020

It is the start of the Twenties in Liverpool.

Many words were said on pay and expenses.

A request was made for fewer decisions on street traders. Joe Hanson said, “they know what strings to pull”! In future more may be agreed by staff.

Then to the thorny issues of:-

a) reform of public question time and
b) the Member/Officer Protocol.

Steve Radford was annoyed as he wasn’t invited to an event in his ward.

The mistake was blamed on a junior member of staff. The apology from Tony Reeves was described as “meaningless”.

Laura Robertson-Collins (not present) wanted changes to public question time. A report on this to the next meeting was requested.
