Members considered the assessments of progress contained within the updates on the implementation of previously agreed recommendations. There were outstanding recommendations from the reviews of Meeting Venues, Voluntary Community Sector, Older People's Services and EIT Review of Communications, Consultation and Engagement.

MEETING VENUES

Information was requested on the use of the telephone conference facility by Members and officers. It was also requested that a briefing note be issued to Members advising how to use the facility.

OLDER PEOPLE'S SERVICE

Members agreed to sign off recommendations 7, 8, 16 and 19 as fully achieved as they were all ongoing actions.

Members commented that due to the fact that not all older people had access to a computer, the adult information directory and other related information should also be printed in other publications. It was noted that the Head of Communications would request a list of all related publications.

The Chair queried whether there were plans to continue publishing future golden guides and if so the frequency of the publications. The Scrutiny Officer advised that she would inquire and report to Members via email.

Members requested a completion date for recommendation 25 - Outdoor exercise/recreational equipment - Newham Grange, and a more detailed update be brought at the next monitoring.
CAS

The Scrutiny Officer advised that following consideration of the school catering report at the previous meeting it would be presented to Cabinet on 17th February 2011.

One further scheduled meeting would be taking place in this municipal year for Corporate, Adult Services and Social Inclusion on 15th March 2011. Items for that meeting would include action plans for the EIT reviews of Human Resources, Taxation and School Catering.
