Members noted that it had not yet been confirmed how the Executive Member responsible for considering possible savings on public convenience provision intended taking the review forward.  The Executive Member for Environment gave reassurance that his colleague’s investigations would dovetail with the work undertaken by the Panel and that it would be consulted in due course.
