Do you have a question for Cabinet Members?

The Council’s Scrutiny Programme Committee holds the Council’s Cabinet to account and during the course of the year arranges Q & A sessions with each Cabinet Member.







Each Q & A session will explore the work Cabinet Members have done in their role, looking at priorities, actions, achievements and impact.

Is there anything that you think the committee should ask them?

Let us have your ideas by adding a comment to this post, by email to or tweet us at @swanseascrutiny.

Any suggestions made will be looked at by the committee in developing its questioning strategy and the key ones will be put to relevant Cabinet Members when they appear before the committee.

The Cabinet is made up of the Leader, Councillor Rob Stewart, and 9 additional councillors appointed by the Leader, who are allocated specific responsibilities.
