31/07/07 – Environment Agency and Thames Water to be Scrutinised
At last night’s Scrutiny meeting that I chaired, I suggested and successfully had added to the work program an item to perform external scrutiny on the Environment Agency and Thames Water over the recent flooding that Swindon received.
Every year the Scrutiny Committee performs at least one external Scrutiny, but following my suggestion last night this year we will have two. The item on the flooding will be held as an extra meeting and will be planned for August or September.
I will obviously be raising points specific to the ward in this meeting.
This is in addition to the public meeting that Phil, Dale and myself are organising for both the Environment Agency and Thames Water to attend in the ward.
