Overview and Scrutiny (O&S) Committees act as the "critical friend" to the Council's decision makers. They assist in strategic policy development and carry out in-depth scrutiny inquiries into issues and make recommendations. Committees also have the power to 'call in' a decision of the Executive and refer the decision back to the Cabinet for reconsideration.
