[View Minute]           

At the Annual Meeting on 13th May, 2015, there was an agenda item dealing with the appointment of various Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen of Committees.  Councillor Audrey Preston was appointed Chairman of the Advisory Group.  Whilst Councillor Eric Hacker was nominated and seconded as Vice- Chairman, due to late changes to the adjustments of seats on Committees originally notified by the Plaid Cymru Group, the Llantwit First Independent Group (of which Councillor Hacker is a Member) do not, in fact, have a seat on the Advisory Group).
