(The referral report from the Overview and Scrutiny Committee had been accepted as a matter of Urgent Business –not having met the publication deadline – and was considered at the meeting as such, with the approval of the Chair, in accordance with the Council’s constitutional rules and the powers vested in the Chair by virtue of Section 100 (B) (4) (b) of the Local Government Act 1972 to agree to matters of urgency being discussed by reason of special circumstances.
In this case the special circumstances were that the Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting post-dated the agenda despatch and the referral report needed to be considered at the present meeting to have any bearing on the decision-making process in respect of this matter.)
