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 councillors appointed by the Leader, who are allocated specific responsibilities.

Councillor Andrea Lewis, Cabinet Member for Homes & Energy, will kick off this year’s sessions, appearing before the Scrutiny Programme Committee on 13 August.

Committee meetings are open to the public and you are welcome to attend. All meetings usually take place in the Council Chamber at the Guildhall, Swansea starting at 4.30 pm.

A summary of each session, including public questions that are asked, responses, and views of the committee are included in a letter to the relevant cabinet member. Both these letters and responses from Cabinet Members are published on the council website and in future Scrutiny Programme Committee agendas.




  1. David Hawker says

    When Councillors/Officers/representatives of Swansea Council, attend external Partnership/Other Bodies, to represent citizens of Swansea, is there a process of ensuring that the agenda/content /minutes of these meetings, held outside of normal Swansea Council venues, is openly published by that External body, or if not then does Swansea Council accept responsibility to publish and inform it’s citizen’s.?
