Guide: Public participation at committee meetings

Part 3

Are there any restrictions on what questions I may ask?

No, provided the question is not frivolous or defamatory and does not concern a confidential issue which would normally be considered in private. Otherwise you may ask a question about any matter which relates to the responsibilities of the Council or the Cabinet. If you are not sure about which meeting is responsible please contact the Democratic Services and Scrutiny Secretariat who will be happy to advise
