I would like the names of the members of the 'Improvement Board' referred to in a letter from the then Under Secretary of State, Shahid Malik MP dated 8th March 2010 to the then Leader of the Council, Councillor Garry Hague.
When was the decision made by the council to engage this 'Improvement Board'? Are there cost implications to the council? Is this 'Improvement Board' still current? Does or did this 'Improvement Board' abide by the processes of local democracy? By that I mean does this board have the power to override responsibilities of members and officers?
