Subject: Mr Andrew Webb – appointment to outside bodies

Dear FoI Officer

I have been reading the Executive meeting agenda for 3rd August regarding the Council’s constitution.

Apparently appointments to outside bodies have to be approved.  My question is: Who agreed to Mr. Andrew Webb being on so many outside committees, bodies, think tanks etc? Please list each appointment and who agreed it.  Mr. Webb is head of a directorate which by the Council’s own assessment is not meeting a large number of performance indicators.  My feeling is that if he is highly paid to do a job he should concentrate on that and not on other career-boosting activities.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
