Selection Committee

The Selection Committee makes recommendations to the Annual Meeting of the Council on the appointment and membership of committees and sub-committees in accordance with the nominations put forward by the Political Groups.

Recommendations are based upon the political proportionality of the Council. In the absence of any formal grouping representing the interests of any Members, the Selection Committee recommends the allocation of places for those Members, attempting to meet their preferences wherever possible. The Committee also makes recommendations to the Annual Council Meeting on the appointment of representatives of the Council to outside bodies. At any other time of the year, the Policy Committee makes decisions on appointments to outside bodies.
