The minutes of the meeting held on the 20th January, 2021 were taken as read and signed by the Chair as a correct record.
Arising out of the above, questions were asked as to why a report on the Glassworks scheduled to be brought to this meeting had not been forthcoming. In addition, it was noted that an exempt report had been submitted to the Cabinet meeting in January.
The Head of Internal Audit, Anti-Fraud and Assurance stated that a programme of items for submission to future meetings was in preparation. It was important to ensure, however, that any update reports were submitted in a timely manner as and when progress on projects and issues meant that such updates could be meaningful. It was the intention to submit a report on the Glassworks to the April meeting. In relation to this meeting, however, the Service Director Finance confirmed that there had been insufficient progress on the Glassworks since the last update report to provide a meaningful update for this meeting.
