Two public questions had been received from members of the public.
The first question was asked in person by Dr L Welch on behalf of ‘Keep our NHS Public North East’ and asked what Durham County Council is doing to promote local participation and scrutiny regarding decision-making by Integrated Care Boards. Councillor P Sexton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Adult and Health Services provided a response to the question, which would be posted on the Council’s website.
The second question was from Mr N Kasch and related to the Tees Valley Energy Recovery Facility as a future source of liability for the Council. Mr Kasch was unable to attend the meeting to ask his question, but Councillor M Wilkes, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhoods and Climate Change noted that he would respond to the question in writing following the meeting, and the response would be posted on the Council’s website.
