The Council gave consideration to a report advising of a change to the political composition of the Council following written notification that Councillor Roderick McCuish was now a member of the Independence for Scotland political party, and confirmation of Councillor Robin Currie as Leader of the Argyll, Lomond and the Islands Group. The report also invited the Council to approve a change to the members nominated by the Council to serve on the Board of Live Argyll, following a change in Shadow Policy Lead roles.
The Executive Director advised of a typographical error in that the initials for the Independence for Scotland Party should actually be ISP.
The Council –
1. Noted the updated Political Composition of Argyll and Bute Council attached at Appendix 1 to the submitted report.
2. Agreed to appoint Councillor Audrey Forrest to replace Councillor Jim Lynch on the Live Argyll Board.
