Guide: Scrutiny

A guide to scrutiny

What does scrutiny review?

Scrutiny committees are independent of Cabinet and each committee determines its own programme of work.

To do this, scrutiny needs to consider whether the subject is of public concern, if the law or government policy has changed, if there is a problem with performance or spend or other intelligence suggests that scrutiny could add value.
