Item 7: Adopt West London – regional Adoption Agency (RAA)

 

Councillor Millican noted that it was now a Government requirement for adoption services to be delivered on a regional basis — a move warmly being welcomed by local authorities.  Twenty-three London Boroughs have formed 4 separate Regional Adoption Agencies and Ealing will host Adopt London West. 

 

Item 8: Environmental Services Local Authority Company: Procurement and Contract Related Matters

 

Councillor Millican relayed that a combination of unavailable technology and prohibitive costs meant that the new fleet would largely not be electric.  Questions around costings would be addressed in the Business Plan coming to the October Cabinet meeting.

 

Shadow Cabinet agreed to call this item in for the following reasons:

 

  • To seek more understanding of the decisions and its implications;

  • To make recommendations to the Cabinet and/or Council; and

  • To question whether the decisions conform with agreed policies.

  • To question the financial implication of the decision.
