Public questions and answers

Answers from Cabinet and Council meetings

In this section you will find the answers to the questions asked at some meetings of Cabinet and Council.

Since July 2008 questions and answers can be found within the published minutes of Cabinet and Council meetings.  

The Council, every Committee and most panels make up to 15 minutes available for the public to ask questions. Your question will either be answered by the Portfolio holder, the Chair of the Committee or will be posted in writing. We aim to publish the answers to the questions online very 5 days afters the meeting.

Any Harrow resident or representative of a local organisation may ask a question at a meeting, plus one follow-up question on the reply received. Questions should be submitted in writing by 3.00 pm at least two clear working days before the day of the relevant meeting.

What happens when you submit a question?

  1. A Democratic Services Officer will acknowledge receipt of your question.
  2. A day after the deadline for questions has passed s/he will advise the questioner whether or not the question has been accepted.
  3. An explanation will be given to the questioner if the question is rejected.
