Councillors Donna Jones, Luke Stubbs, Simon Bosher, Judith Smyth and George Fielding have asked that the decision taken by the Cabinet on 10 August 2018 in respect of item 4 on that agenda, "Victory Energy Supply Limited - Expert Review of Business Case" be called in for scrutiny on the basis that they believe that the decision may have been taken based on inaccurate, incorrect or inadequate information.

 

The decision today is for the panel to determine whether the Cabinet 's decision

• has been based on inaccurate or incorrect information

• has been taken without adequate information

 

If the panel is satisfied that the decision has not been based on inaccurate or incorrect information, or that it was not taken without adequate information being supplied to enable the Cabinet to reach its decision, then no further action is required and the matter ends here.

 

If the panel is not satisfied on these grounds, the panel may refer the matter back to the Cabinet for reconsideration stating the reasons why.

 

A report by the City Solicitor is attached with the following documents as appendices:

      Report entitled “'Victory Energy Supply Limited - Expert Review of Business Case'” considered by the Cabinet on 10 August 2018.

      The Record of Decisions from the Cabinet Meeting held on 10 August 2018.

      Call-in request (Appendix 3)

 

The procedure to be followed for the meeting is as set out in Appendix 2 of the report.

 

The relevant members and officers will be in attendance.

 

RECOMMENDED that the Panel considers the evidence and decides whether to resolve either that no action should be taken in respect of the decision made by the Cabinet on 10 August 2018, or that it should be referred back to Cabinet for reconsideration specifying the reasons for doing so.
