Question S2W-31941

To ask the Scottish Executive why local authorities are not required to produce official reports detailing what was said in meetings of their committees rather than a summary of what took place and whether the Executive has any plans to require this type of reporting for the purposes of transparent local government and accountability.

Local authorities are not required to produce official reports because no such provision has been made in legislation. The Executive has no plans to require local authorities to produce official reports but, as independent corporate bodies, local authorities may produce official reports if they wish to do so.
