Cabinet question time - a new approach to accountability in Hackney

The overview and scrutiny board, a cross-party group of councillors, runs meetings that ask local cabinet members about how they manage performance in the service areas they are responsible for.

Following the Cabinet question tme series in 2011/12 the approach was analysed to help improve it for following years. This briefing paper provides some of the feedback.

Ask a question

Submit a question using the details on the right. If your question gets asked, we'll let you know and provide a link to the minutes.

The meetings are at 7pm in Hackney Town Hall. Members of the public are welcome to attend and listen to the debate.

Cabinet question time schedule

The schedule for 2013/14 will be agreed at the Board meeting in July, and will be included here shortly.
