Health in Hackney membership in 2019/20

Source By:

The Council takes lots of decisions every day about how to provide public services and spend money. These decisions are taken by the cabinet, made up of the Mayor, 9 cabinet members and 2 mayoral advisors.

To make sure these decisions are taken fairly, that local people get a say on how policies are produced, and that services are provided in the best possible way, many of the councillors sit on scrutiny commissions. In Hackney we have 4 scrutiny commissions and an overarching scrutiny panel.

The meeting dates for 2019/20 are:

  • 13 June
  • 10 July
  • 12 Sept
  • 4 Nov
  • 4 Dec
  • 29 Jan
